Worst experience, especially, in the winter. Pick up pin had issues twice in a roll within the same day. Picked a ride that is supposed to pick me up quicker, and I chose to pay a bit more. But, as soon as I made my selection, the waiting time doubled. That is low. The driver of the 2nd trip didn't wait for me where the pin was, I had to walk for a minute in the cold trying to get to her.

I really think with a few simple tweaks to the app this could be so much easier to use and way more customer friendly. Firstly add option for return trip to be able to add after initial booking. And just 1 small step further, add option to add stops along the journey. Could be an extra passenger, two friends sharing a ride home, etc

The app is okay and more reliable than uber in my area, but needs improvements. I attend a very large campus and can't manually select a drop-off/pick-up point, as the app only gives an option of 3 main entrances. This is inconvenient as I can't be dropped-off/picked-up at any other access gates and have to walk much further now. Also, the 15min time limit after the trip has ended to tip the driver is ridiculous, it needs to be extended to an hour as people are in a rush sometimes and miss it.
