Uber eliminates travel stress this festive season
Uber launches UberEVENTS to provided guests door-to-door rides with allocated festive passes
Uber is feeling festive with the launch of UberEVENTS, a service to take out the stress of travel over the festive period.
The location-based taxi hailing app allows users who are hosting parties or gatherings to provide guests door-to-door rides to prevent them searching for parking or getting home at the end of the night. Users will be required to set the event details and allocate ride passes to their guests.
Uber also has other ease-of-use features, such as UberScheduledRides, which allows users to schedule a ride up to 30 days or 30 minutes beforehand. Plus the app has the option to spilt the fare when travelling with friends or family and also share a status which includes a map of the route and the expected time of arrival in real-time.
Uber also includes a lost and found service making it easier to recover lost items; the rider will need to enter their phone number and the phone will connect with the drivers. Lastly, Uber users can add family or friends to their Family Profile, and pay for their rides as well as track their journey in real-time.
