Question

A constituent has asked me to raise the question.  Are you aware that Uber only records the details of a trip requested once the driver has accepted the ride without knowing how to get to the pick up or destination?

Transport for London (TfL) requires that private hire operators record the main destination of the customer's journey before the journey starts. It is up to individual operators to decide what information they provide to drivers on bookings and when they provide this.
