Uber's new family feature is officially available in 30 countries around the world, with more expected to be added soon.
While Lyft doesn't have a dedicated feature for requesting rides for friends, the company is totally fine with users who want to do so, simply noting in its policy that you can enter your friend's address into the app when ordering a auto.
The account holder just chooses the pickup location and destination, goes through his/her contacts for the rider's phone number, and requests the ride. Riders can simply pay in cash once they've arrived to their destination.
Sometimes it's that person who had too much to drink and sometimes it's that person who doesn't know what an app is.
A new service rolling out today makes it easier to hail a ride for others, the company said in a blog post.
As soon as Uber assigns a driver, the rider receives a text message with all the necessary details-estimated time of arrival, auto model, plate number, driver's name, his contact details, and a link where you can track your driver's location.
"Keeping these insights top of mind, we've been thinking about ways to make our app more accessible to everyone in the family", they wrote. There's also a link where the rider will be able to track the driver's route.
"Uber is committed to providing safe, reliable transportation options for everyone in the family".
