Uber announced a string of changes Tuesday that the ride share platform says will make hailing a ride at the airport easier.
This includes making it easier to track down a driver at dozens of airports around the world, Jen You, head of product for rides at Uber, said in a blog post Tuesday.
This comes just ahead of what's expected to be an extremely busy spring break.
Airlines for America — which represents the largest U.S. carriers — and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) both projected that airport volumes will surpass pre-pandemic levels.
