Uber adds more features to App
A new feature, Paid Wait Time, has been added to the Uber app to make transportation less stressful and more productive for both driver-partners and their riders.
This announcement was made by Uber in a statement made available to Daily Trust.
The General Manager, Uber West Africa, Lola Kassim said, “Long wait times can be stressful for driver-partners. By the time they arrive at the pick-up location, the driver has already invested fuel, time and effort in getting to a rider. With the “Paid Waiting Time” policy, Uber will ensure driverpartners get paid per minute if a rider keeps them waiting for more than five minutes after the driver arrives at their pick-up location.
Last month, Uber announced new features for driverpartners (Arrival Time, Long Trip Notification and Rating Protection) that have made it easier for driver-partners across Nigeria to choose when, where, and how they drive.
