Uber Detours

As part of the Tractor UX Design course, we were tasked with augmenting the user experience of an existing app, by adding a new feature. This concept is a design for a new feature for Uber - Detours. 

How might we improve the carpool experience?

After discussing with users of the Uber service, it was discovered that people wanted the ability to carpool with friends, without having to meet up first. This resulted in the addition of the Detours feature to the app.

This feature allows the user to add multiple stops into a trip. Meaning that users are able to pick up their friends along the way to a shared destination.
