Long Trip Notifications
Your time is precious. The Uber Driver app will now notify you when an incoming request has a long trip duration.
How does it look?
When you receive a new trip request, your Uber Driver app will notify you if the estimated trip duration is a long one, so you have the flexibility of planning your time in advance.
Note: We are currently testing this new feature with a select number of drivers
Just below the estimated time to arrive at the rider's pick-up location, you will see a [Long Trip] notification if the estimated trip duration is going to be a long one.
What if I don't want to accept long trips?
Do not tap to accept the request. This will not affect your incentives.
Are there any penalties for not accepting long trips?
No. There are no penalties. We understand that you may occasionally receive a ride request with a destination that is farther than you wish to drive.
