I have received this email today. Wonder if it is just me or others have...

I have seen threads here where it is implied that most of you have had this feature for a long time:
=======================================================================
You asked for it - we listened! Earn on your way home

Hi >>>

Driver-partners have often told us they'd like to complete a final trip that puts them closer to a particular destination. So we have an exciting update for you!

Now, twice per day, you can let us know where you’re driving and will only receive requests for trips along a similar route. Go online and tap the clipboard icon in the top corner of your screen to set your destination.

It’s easier than ever to earn a few more fares on your way home.

This is a great feature.

I used it on Saturday night and got a fantastic pickup 7 minutes away. The job was completed in 1 minute and I took them 800M. I was ecstatic with my $4.80 payout.

Uber on folks

$4.80 more than you would have if you logged out and went home.... If you think about it, its a pretty good payment for the work done. 1 min travel time, and short distance. So what, nearly $1/min? :smiles:

Now if I could repeat that all the way home from the city to Ringwood.... I would be MEGA RICH!

Well the idea is ON THE WAY, not TO that place... Something is better than nothing on the way home and certainly better than going offline driving empty or getting a job heading in the WRONG direction :/

I just received it today and one of the few things that Uber have done that will actually help our life. Sure it will probably have us staying online longer than we have done so win, win!

No email here, but popped up in the partner app as a message. Its a good feature and win/win for both Uber and drivers. This way Uber can keep MORE drivers online longer.

I for one am happy with the feature.

So it is applying to Eats as well? If so then am going to use it for sure. That will be super useful.

Obviously Uber need to tweak it to allow reasonable distance in your directions say over 4k's but many of you drivers have difficulty understanding costs and time, this should be a useful feature.
I got the same thing when I was in the limo industry guys would knock back $55 city to airport jobs because they were cheap although they had a pickup in the Airport one hour later.
