Uber Will Soon Start Showing Drivers the Amount They Will Earn Before Accepting a Trip


Uber, the app-based cab booking giant is all set to change the company policies concerning drivers. According to the announcement the company is planning to make the app more client-friendly, the client being the drivers that use the app to ferry passengers around. In the current interface, the drivers can see how much they will get paid and where the trip will end. However, after the user interface is changed drivers will have more power. They will also be able to see other requests in their areas and accept them according to their preferences.

This step will also benefit the users who book the cabs. Since, now the drivers will be able to see the destination leading to fewer cancellation of trip requests. The driver will only accept the request where he/she wants to go.

The estimated fare that will be shown to the driver will be based on a number of factors like surge pricing, trip length, trip duration, traffic, etc. however this estimate will not include wait charges and such, they will be adjusted as the trip progresses if any. This will be fair to both the drivers and the riders as it is more transparent.
