Uber is rolling out a series of new features for its higher-priced luxury car service, Uber Black, including a “quiet car” mode for riders who want to discourage chatty drivers
In addition to a quiet mode, Uber riders can also use the app to request help with their luggage or to communicate their preferred temperature to the driver. They can also ask for extra time before getting into the car without incurring late pickup fees, and will able to speak directly to a customer service rep if something goes wrong.
Uber Black and Uber Black SUV are the company’s premium car services that place riders in high-end vehicles. Fares are typically 100 percent more expensive than Uber X and 200 percent more expensive than Uber Pool.
