What is even cooler is that the 'Call to Ride' feature is being piloted in our very own city, Pune. All you'd now need to do is call a single phone number and enter a numeric code displayed on signage to help Uber identify your location. This would also cancel the process of a call between the rider and the driver! No more directions to be given!
The 'Request for a Guest' feature is to be launched in the next few weeks, where you can book a cab for someone else without the use of a smartphone.
Lastly, the offline search feature will enable users to search even in low network areas. This will be pushed with the help of data on the top most visited spots in the city. So booking a cab for Phoenix won't take you more than a few seconds anymore!
