Uber launches airport guides to help cut pickup confusion

We’ve all been there before — at an airport, tired after a long flight and searching for the rideshare pickup area. Uber now hopes to simplify that experience.

What’s happening: The rideshare giant announced Tuesday that it’s adding step-by-step instructions within its app to navigate travelers from the plane to their Uber pickup zone.

The handy feature — which will include directions and accompanying photos — will be available at more than 30 airports worldwide to start, including San Francisco International Airport…

Details: As part of the announcement, Uber also said it’ll soon roll out “walking ETAs” at more than 400 airports, so travelers can more accurately know when to call for a ride and cut down on their wait times.

The company’s expanding its reservation feature in several cities as well to include more ride types.
