Uber drivers now know their destination before accepting trip

Uber drivers in San José, Liberia, and San Carlos will now know the passenger’s destination before agreeing to take the trip.

The change, the company says, seeks to reduce cancellations due to uncertainty of the destination and improve the security of both the user and the partner (driver).

Also, drivers will also know if the user they will pick up has made only a few trips through the app.

Taking advantage of GPS technology and other sensors in smartphones, Uber will be able to detect other anomalies during a trip such as a prolonged stop that could indicate a risk situation.
