Uber is a great source for getting to place to place for a reasonable price!
Well Uber is testing a new feature that could offer cheaper rides to customers who are willing to wait a few minutes.
In a statement released to Quartz, an Uber representative confirmed that the feature was being tested by employees, saying, “Affordability is a top reason riders choose shared rides, and we’re internally experimenting with a way to save money in exchange for a later pickup.”
Uber already offers a similar sort of feature for its Uber Pool carpooling service with Uber Express Pool, where users are able to walk a bit farther and wait a bit longer in exchange for cheaper fares.
There’s no word yet on whether or not Uber is planning to expand the option to more users or if it will just remain a test.
The picture below is an example of what it would look like if you decide to wait a few minutes for a cheaper rate:
