Uber introduces its all new two-way rating system, Now Uber riders can even rate you

Almost being in the business for more than a decade, Uber; your ride genie is now allowing its audience to see the rating they were given by their riders. The mobile application is putting an end to the mystery of the ride-share rating system. Supposedly, if three riders gave you two stars, you’ll be able to see it from now onwards. But, you won’t be able to know which one of the drivers rated you. Back then, drivers were only able to see their score average until Uber announced in the company’s blog last Wednesday that riders will be able to see a summary of their score in the application.

According to the company, this new update will help in understanding how exactly your ratings were computed. The company will now be showing its riders the ratings that they have received.

Knowing that the drivers now can rate you too could be agitating whether the caption rated you well for being punctual or gave you a single star for littering in their vehicle. However, this could lead to building an evenly balanced relationship between the two ends.

Here’s a little guide to understanding how to get access to your rating on the app;

Start with heading over to the privacy section in the Setting. Once there, tap on the privacy center and swipe till the title of ‘How to use the application’. Uber has even added a summary for the rating you were given by your riders. The summary contains your statistics, for example; the number of rides you’ve taken, etc. You can even find information about the riders you have taken a trip with and the amount you have paid them.

This feature is now available to all the riders and is a part of Uber’s plan to boost transparency on their platform. Uber calculates the average rating using the data from your last five hundred rides, so if you ever wondered how you can exactly boost your rating up, Uber suggests that you do not litter in the car, fasten your seatbelts, not make the rider wait for you, etc.

Uber also highlighted the cities in the US from worse to the best according to a survey they conducted, with the big apple; New York being worse with Washington just falling behind. While Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania was listed as the best city.

But it doesn’t matter where exactly you live, with the information from this new feature; you can enhance the experience you and your next Uber driver will have.
