Uber adds more fea­tures to App

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Risikat Ra­moni, La­gos

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.
