1. Shopping malls/shopping centers
If you should send out a request from a shopping mall, please text your driver with what entrance you would like to be picked up from. Now with shopping centers. Instead of using the address put in the name of the store you are at, it will make it a lot easier for your driver to find you.
2. Big events
Most big events have set pick up and drop off locations. However, if the one your at shouldn't text or call your driver with a precise place to meet at, or your driver may contact you with a location. This will make it faster and quicker to get to you without having to get stuck in traffic.
