The feature called “upfront fares,” will show drivers exactly how much they’ll be paid for a trip and where they’ll end up after dropping a rider off. The company claims that this move will “completely reimagine the way drivers accept rides.”

The announcement comes at a time when the company is pushing to make driving for the rideshare service more flexible.
