Some of us are anti-social, right? I've seen actual tweets from people who wish nothing more than to be able to enjoy their Uber ride in complete silence. Uber is making this a reality for their higher paying customers. Now, if you request an Uber Black car, you can request "Quiet Mode," which means your driver will have minimal conversation with you. This seems like it could be a challenge for some crazy drivers. On the other hand, i've had many a really respectful and great driver who respected my quiet. Other new options for premium riders, include passenger temperature control, luggage assistance and longer wait times for customers beyond the normal five minute limit.
