Uber announced that it’s introducing in-app directions at more than 30 airports to make locating your ride easier.
Any traveler, from the frequent flyer to occasional vacationer, would rejoice at the idea of an easier, more efficient and hassle-free travel experience. Luckily, Uber is doing its part to make this happen.
According to Travel and Leisure, the rideshare app announced on Tuesday that it plans to introduce in-app directions to pickup locations at more than 30 airports around the world. This new feature will guide travelers from their gate to the designated Uber pickup area using written instructions and photos. Directions will be available for popular locations including Boston, Chicago, Miami, New York and more. Walking estimates will also be available in more than 400 airports worldwide to help travelers more accurately plan when to request a ride.
“We want every Uber experience to feel effortless. With travel roaring back, we’ve been innovating on ways to redesign your airport experience from beginning to end so that you’re not just getting to and from the airport, but also getting through it with less stress,” Jen You, the head of product for rides at Uber, told Travel and Leisure. “Our new series of products and features will help you plan for your upcoming trips and make your airport travel smoother than ever.”
Uber is also expanding its Uber Reserve feature, which will now allow travelers to schedule a ride up to 90 days in advance. The previous limit was 30 days. UberX, UberXL, Green, Comfort, Comfort Electric, Premier, Black, or Black SUV will all be available to book ahead of time. As if Uber wasn’t generous enough, the company is offering Uber One members $20 in Uber cash on their next reserved ride when they use the code “GORESERVE.”
