Uber and Foursquare collab takes the guesswork out of finding your ride

Beyond helping drivers and passengers find each other, the updated POI data will also make Uber’s other businesses, like uberEATS and uberRUSH better. “For example, if you’re a driver picking up food for delivery, you might naturally go to the front of the business but the order might be waiting for you at the back door. By customizing Foursquare’s POI data, it will be easier for Uber drivers to identify the right pickup and dropoff locations in many different situations,” says Uber. Uber currently uses Google Maps for POI data and TomTom to power the navigation feature within its app.
