Ride-hailing platform Uber on Wednesday announced the launch of its new driver app, rebuilt completely from the ground up, for and with drivers.
The new app provides a more simple and personalised experience, designed to support drivers and delivery partners on every moment of their journey.
“The launch of the new partner (drivers and courier partners) app is a key milestone for Uber. It truly reflects our commitment to the people who have been our partners in growth. We have built this app by listening to what they needed and shaped it alongside them – over 100 partners from Bengaluru were a part of the global beta launch. Our teams spent time on-ground, interacting with partners through group sessions, ride alongs and in person meetings to gather inputs,” said Pradeep Parameswaran, Head of Central Operations, Uber India and SA.
The new app entails a number of features essential to both driver partners as well as customers.
The app also contains a comprehensive guide to getting started with Uber that will be available to drivers in the coming months, as per a blog post written by Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.
