Uber App Update: Signing up is now a snap-shot!
One of our goals at Uber is to get you to where you want to go as quickly as possible. Of course, before you can request a ride, you need to sign up. But signing up for anything is hard… who wants to stand around and fill out forms? Not us!
We’ve worked hard to make signing up and entering information as simple as possible so that you can be on your way. And now, we’ve introduced a new feature that allows you to simply scan your credit card to add it to your Uber account.
If you’re a frequent online shopper, you might have your credit card numbers, CVVs and expiration dates memorized… (who, me?). However, for most of us, our cards are meaningless strings of numbers. With our latest iPhone app update, all you need to do is hold up your card in front of your phone. Here’s how it works:
Android users – we’ll soon be integrating this feature into our Android app so you can also feel the magic. ;)
We’ve got lots of exciting new things coming along, so keep an eye out here for more product updates!
We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
