Uber will offer cheaper кides to people who can wait

Uber logoUber is testing a new feature that will offer cheaper rides to users who are willing to wait. It often happens that we absolutely have to catch an Uber at a particular time and pay for it even when surge pricing is in effect which can lead to significantly higher fares than normal. However, if you have the luxury of time, Uber’s new feature will allow you to wait for a cheaper ride.

An Uber employee tweeted out a picture of this new feature which revealed that it will inform users what time fares are lowered and the amount they’re going to save. If they’re okay with waiting, Uber will then request their ride at that time so that they can save a few dollars in the process.

Even though the employee has since deleted the tweet, Uber confirmed to Quartz that this experimental feature has been developed but it’s not available to users just yet. This feature is currently available to Uber employees in San Francisco and Los Angeles only at this point in time.

It will depend on how the testing goes before Uber decides whether or not it will offer this feature to all users. It will certainly go a long way in help them book rides at times where they don’t have to pay over and above the normal fare.
