Uber is making additional changes to its driver-side app by allowing drivers to set more destinations and offering “long trip notifications” to tell a driver when a rider is requesting a ride that’s 45 minutes or longer.

The changes are part of a process the company is calling “180 Days of Change,” which it says will transform the driver experience for the 2 million people who drive for Uber each week.
