Uber India launched a plethora of new features on Thursday for the convenience of both drivers and riders.

Riders have also complained about drivers canceling rides or refusing to turn on the air conditioning.

Following this, Uber announced that from now, the company will show trip destinations to drivers before they decide to accept the ride. “In our attempt to incentivise right platform behaviour – drivers who meet a predefined trip acceptance threshold will be eligible to get the destination information so that they can make an informed choice,” it stated, adding that the upfront destination feature is already live across 20 cities and will be expanded to all others.

“Our goal is to provide drivers and riders with a safe and dependable platform. A single ride that falls short is inexcusable. Here are a few things we’re taking to reclaim the magic: “In a statement, Uber said.

“Given this is a substantial change, we will continue monitoring feedback from drivers and riders, and iterating on these thresholds over the coming few weeks,” it added.

Furthermore, in order to fix the mode of payment issues, Uber will now also enable the driver to choose a cash-only ride if that’s what they need. “Going a step further to make the cash or online decision irrelevant, we’ve now introduced a daily pay process for drivers.”
