Uber will now allow users to update their pickup location once they book a ride. Today many users use Ola or Uber to book a ride as per their convenience,  but a common problem that users face is requesting a ride from a wrong location.

At times a rider might accidentally book a ride from a wrong place and then when they realize it they end up cancelling the ride. Normally the pickup location is automatically detected via the smartphone GPS lock.
