Propose an update to the main Uber application for riders & drivers to support a new initiative.

UberPARTY is Uber’s new feature to travel together, even when you’re not together.

Uber is building out a product for groups, specifically to support the case of a group of friends going to a party/event together. Groups of riders will need to be able to request for an Uber together and the driver will need to collect them from multiple locations and deliver them to the same destination.
