Uber and Westfield shopping centers have partnered, serving as yet another example of the ridesharing brand's dedication to consumer convenience.

The mall is a common place for bag-carrying consumers to hail a ride, however, the facility's multiple entrances make for a series of confusing and often frustrating interactions upon pick-up. To amend this issue, Uber is offering designated waiting areas in 33 Westfield malls throughout the United States. The drop-off and pick-up areas will be visible to Uber drivers through the app, providing a streamlined means of location detection.

These lounges ensure the loading and unloading of passengers is as convenient as efficient for both the customer and the driver. The first lounge is set to appear in Westfield Century City mall in Los Angeles, California.
