Uber's multi-destination feature makes riding with friends easier

Rachel England

Uber has launched a multiple stop feature that lets riders add up to three stops on their trip, eliminating the need to add a new address after each drop or pick-up. Open the app, hit "Where to?" and then tap the "+" symbol to add the addresses of each stop. You can add or remove stops in real time, with your requests syncing with your driver's directions immediately, and you can still split the cost of the fare with friends via the app.

It's a useful feature for both parties, helping drivers minimise the time spent on each trip and giving riders more transparency on their fares. The function is already in use in some major cities worldwide, but will roll out more widely in the coming week. Londoners, of course, will miss out (for now, at least).
