Last month, Uber announced Cool New Safety Features With App they also announced a Partnership With Venmo. Uber is very convenient already and I appreciate all that Uber seems to be doing to make using them even easier. Here are 3 new improvements that they are rolling out to make your experience better:

  • Easily share with driver where you are waiting or what color your are wearing with a tap. These messages are read out loud to your driver.

  • Spotlight, a colored light that you can hold up in the dark to help your driver spot you.

  • Guarantee pick up time. Schedule your ride at least 30 mins in advance and you driver will arrive on time – or you get free credits toward your next ride.

Whether you have an early flight or an important meeting, schedule your ride in advance to be certain you’ll leave on time. Our on-time guarantee means that when you schedule a ride at least 30 minutes in advance, your ride will arrive within the 10-minute window you choose, or we’ll give you credits toward your next ride.

I love Uber, it is super convenient! If you still haven’t tried Uber yet, you can still get a credit towards your first ride with my referral link, here or your credit can be applied to your UberEats order instead!
