p Uber is making it easier for you to get to your most-frequented places faster.

The company launched a Saved Places option that lets you bookmark your favorite restaurant, hotel, friend’s house, store, or venue, promising to eliminate the time spent trying to remember addresses.

/p p Previously, you could list your home and work location as favorite places.

And with the with the redesign of the rider app in November, Uber used machine learning to surface destinations it believed you might be going to based on time of day and past behavior.

But that technology can’t as easily account for places you don’t go consistently, which is where Saved Places will come in handy.

/p p Not only can you bookmark your friend’s house, but Uber also lets you name it so you can find it easily.
