Uber fares are dynamic, but if you are a little on the patient side, you could benefit greatly from an upcoming feature.
The company is testing a feature within Uber employees which offers them a cheaper ride if they are willing to take the ride at a slightly delayed pickup time, Quartz reported.
The report asserts that the feature seems to have been accidentally disclosed by an Uber employee and tweeted a screenshot of the feature, which was deleted later.
"The image showed the Uber employee that he could request a ride “now” (4:56 pm local time) for $10.18, or wait until 5 pm and pay $8.15, about 25 per cent less. “If you’re OK leaving later, we’ll request your ride at 17:00 for a lower price,” Uber’s app stated.
It is unclear as to when the feature will be rolled out to the masses and exactly how much of a time difference will there be between two rides.
