A couple years ago I wrote an article about all the features I wanted to see Uber add, and a lot of them actually came to fruition! Some of these features were out of necessity, some were due to what competitors like Lyft were doing and others just seemed to benefit drivers. While Uber doesn’t have the best reputation among its drivers, over the past year I think they’ve actually added a lot of driver friendly features.
Now typically these new features get tested in a few markets before eventually being rolled out everywhere, but some of my favorites have included Destination Filter, Instant Pay and boost zones on the app. But it’s human nature to want more right?
In the spirit of the New Year, I wanted to take a look today at the features I’d like to see Uber and Lyft add in 2017. There are some features, like an in-app tipping option, on Uber that are a long shot and benefit drivers a whole lot more than Uber, but there are also a lot of features that are mutually beneficial, and those are the bulk of what I’ll present today.
