Uber has been updating the driver app across the world globally since April 2018. Ever since the new CEO of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, was unveiled he wanted to do something to make sure that drivers were being listened to. With the loss initially of the TFL London licence this only made it more important that Uber would want to help the thousands of PCO car hire drivers in London.
They undertook a great task by talking to the Uber Partner Drivers and consulting with them around the world to produce a Driver app worthy of the Uber name.
This had steadily been rolling out across the globe and now it has arrived in London for our PCO drivers.
A couple of new features have been added. We are sure the regular PCO car hire drivers will already be aware of these, but for the rest of them here they are.
- One of the features is an earnings tracker. This is an easy way for the PCO car hire driver to check how much money he/she is earning in real time. This will help you to keep track of the money being earned and if you need to hit a target it will be right there.
- New status bar – The all new status bar will show a number of things which will help all PCO drivers. This includes things like real time updates for nearby jobs and when a job is approaching the end you will be able to accept new jobs based on your proximity to the client.
- The notification feature is used for driver feedback or for Uber announcements.
- Driver profile – This is where it gives the PCO driver has an opportunity for him/her to showcase themselves.
Please see pictures from the Uber website below showing this.
These are some of the updates which Uber has been rolling out throughout the year globally and now they are available in the London Uber Driver App.
