- Uber is rolling out a new quiet mode for riders who want to keep conversation between themselves and their drivers to a minimum.
- The ride-hailing service is offering the option to users who choose the Uber Black and Uber Black SUV services, starting May 15.
- Those rides will come with some additional perks, including the option to select an ideal interior temperature for your ride, luggage service, and a little extra time to find your driver's car after they've arrived.
- It's part of Uber's effort to draw users back to its pricier Uber Black service. The ride-hailing company which has not yet made a profit will likely seek additional roads to revenue after a disappointing debut on the stock market last week.
