Uber releases new ‘arrive by’ feature on UberPool service

In an announcement made on Tuesday, app-based car service Uber said that it is launching a new feature – dubbed ‘arrive by’ – on its UberPool ‘carpooling to work’ service.

The new ‘arrive by’ feature has been rolled out by Uber to make its UberPool service a more attractive option for people who may be interested in availing the advantage of carpooling to work.

Announcing the launch of the new ‘arrive by’ feature on UberPool, Uber said that the feature is basically being rolled out to give users assurance -- and peace of mind -- that they will reach their destination on time. In case, due to some reason, their UberPool ride ends up taking longer than the stipulated time, the riders will get a $2 credit from the service on their next ride.

About the new ‘arrive by’ feature on UberPool, Uber said: "We guarantee you'll arrive at your destination before the time quoted — or we'll give you $2 off your next UberPool trip."

Revealing that the new ‘arrive by’ feature on UberPool is initially being made available to UberPool users in Los Angeles, Uber said that it has plans underway to roll out the feature to additional markets "soon."
