Uber now offers 'conversation-free' premium trips

Read your paper in peace

Under 'Conversation, ' select 'Quiet preferred, ' instead of the default option, which is 'No preference'.

Then, hit 'Request Uber Black, ' and your driver will know what your preferences are ahead of time.

Now, users can take a nap, answer emails or listen to music without interruption from their driver. To this end, Quite Mode should give such groups an option to select rides that adhere to their preferences.

Other features will be added to the luxurious experience includes help with luggage, extended pickup period, temperature control, premium customer support, and more. One of them is a 15-minute grace period once the vehicle arrives to get in the auto, though a per-minute waiting fee will apply after 5 minutes.

Britney Spears' career may be over, longtime manager says
Jamie has controlled his daughter's finances under conservatorship since her infamous public breakdown in 2007. Last month, she spent time in a mental health facility, saying she needed "a little me time ".

Uber is offering passengers who use their premium ride-sharing service the option to choose whether or not they want to have a conversation with the driver.

Already, those that request to be picked up by an Uber Black vehicle benefit from being escorted by a professional driver - with a commercial license - using a high-end black auto (or SUV). Those rides where you just want peace and quiet to reflect and your driver bombards you with endless questions or even worse, they unload on you about something leaving you unsure how to respond.

"With these new features and more to come, we're excited to ensure that our riders can arrive relaxed and refreshed, wherever they're headed", Ghajar said. Uber Black costs 100 percent more than Uber X and 200 percent more than the Uber Pool, according to The Verge. What's more, Quite Mode's set of regulations are set at Uber's headquarters and will not be subject to market dynamics as is it the case with by-laws. "That's why we've improved features and requirements to meet or exceed their expectations on every ride", the news release states.

"Quiet preferred." That's one way to tell your Uber driver to STFU, politely.
