Do you also get annoyed when your Uber drivers cancel your trip after asking for your destination? Well, if that is something you hate going through every day. Now, Uber has announced an update that will ease your woes. Uber India rolls out an update that will potentially prevent users from getting cancel on their driver by allowing the driver to see the drop location beforehand.
“To enhance transparency and remove frustration for riders and drivers. Drivers on the Uber platform across India will now be able to see the trip destination before they decide to accept the ride. Encouraged by the reduction in the number of trip cancellations after the pilot launch in May 2022, Uber has decided to do away with the trip acceptance threshold and rolled out the unconditional feature to all cities. Uber will continue monitoring feedback from drivers and riders and make changes if required,” Uber said in a statement.

Not just that, Uber India has also increased payments to drivers by 15 percent. Cab drivers many a time cancel trips after having asked the passenger their drop location. This issue dulls the experience
