Uber Should Tell You Where To Get Picked Up

One-way streets. Roads with nowhere to pull over. Forbidden U-turns. Sometimes your current location isn’t the most convenient place for Uber to pick you up. Walking 15 seconds around the corner or across the street to a better spot could cut five minutes off waiting to get picked up on or the journey. That’s why Uber, Lyft, and other car services should tell us where to get picked up. A “Suggested Pickup Location” feature could save time and money for drivers and passengers.
[Update 7/8/2015: Uber apparently agrees. The company is now testing “Suggested Pickup Points” in San Francisco]
