Introducing a new way to ride with Uber

Whether you’re looking for a reliable way to make your flight, a big meeting on time, or a ride for a special occasion, thousands of Kiwis rely on Uber every day to get where they need to go.

Now, Uber is announcing the trial of Uber Comfort in New Zealand – an upgrade to your everyday ride.

"Uber Comfort was built for riders who are constantly on the go and want more comfort," says Uber country manager for New Zealand Amanda Gilmore.

"The trial will run in three New Zealand cities: Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. For a price of approximately 15 per cent more than regular UberX rates, Uber Comfort provides new features like Ride Preferences: You can request your ideal temperature in advance and let your drivers know when you’re looking for a quiet ride so you can stay comfortable on the road, Extended Wait Times: We know you value your time, and so do we. With extended wait times your driver will now wait up to 10 minutes, Experienced Driver Partners: Driver partners available for Uber Comfort will have a minimum rating of 4.85 and at least 500 trips logged on the Uber app and Newer Cars: Arrive in comfort with a car that meets consistent vehicle make and model standards (from 2012 onwards)," says Amanda.

Uber Comfort is now available for a three month trial in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

"A vitally important element of any trial is reliable data. Rider and driver partner feedback is encouraged as we work out the future of Uber Comfort in New Zealand," says Amanda.
