Do you or your exec travel to Melbourne? If so, take note of the new pick-up location and PIN technology Uber has introduced at the airport.
In an Australian first, the new Uber PIN technology allows travelers to exit the airport and hop directly into an Uber outside Terminal 2 – no need to request a ride then spend time locating the right driver-partner once they arrive. Riders simply request a ride in the Uber app, and then give their driver-partner a PIN before hopping in.
The PIN technology has been launched at 10 major airports globally, including New York-LaGuardia, Portland, Chicago, San Diego, and New Delhi, and has reportedly delivered a 40-50% reduction in traveler wait time. Feedback suggests the overwhelming majority of riders and driver-partners prefer the PIN tech experience.
