Uber is launching new features to make traveling in and around airports easier. The features include: Expanded Availability of Uber Reserve, Directions to Pickup, Walking ETA's and Business Travel.
Our goal at Uber is to help you go anywhere effortlessly, which is why we’re thrilled to announce a series of new products aimed at making your airport experience smoother than ever.
Ubers "directions to pickup" feature gives travelers step-by-step directions to help you get from your gate to the nearest Uber pickup area and is available at over 30 airports across the globe, including LAX, San Francisco International Airport, JFK and more. Uber is hoping this feature can help travelers figure out where to go in an unfamiliar or super crowded airport. Love this idea because I be getting lost at airports I am not familiar with.
Walking ETA's is another dope feature that'll help travelers know "what it's like when you're waiting to deplane, wondering when to request an Uber ride and feeling unsure how long it will take to get to the pick up location." Travelers will be able to know how long it'll take to get to the baggage claim from your gate with this feature and will soon be available in over 400 airports around the world.
