Uber launches new “Comfort” service in Romania
Uber has launched the Uber Comfort service for its Romanian users. In addition to UberX, Uber Select and Green, Uber users can now also select the “Comfort” option in the Uber app and order trips in comfortable cars and with top-rated, experienced drivers. The service will be available in the app in Bucharest, Cluj, Timișoara, Brașov and Iași.
At a slightly higher price than UberX (20% more on average), passengers are picked up by experienced drivers with top ratings and with particularly high-quality, comfortable cars with extra legroom. In addition, riders can indicate their preferences when it comes to the ride: They can choose from three temperature options, and specify in advance whether they prefer to ride in silence or chat, directly from the app before the trip begins. Moreover, the driver waits for up to ten minutes at the pick-up point for a small surcharge.
