For a smoother ride hailing experience
Save riders time, improve their experience and enhance driver productivity by enabling more accurate drop offs with 3 word addresses.
Postcodes can be frustratingly inaccurate and street address searches drop pins in the centre of buildings rather than precise drop-off points, which wastes time.
With a 3 word address, arriving at an exact 3m x 3m destination leads to significant time and mileage savings.
For exact drop-off points, drivers need extra directions and suboptimal routes negatively affect the ride hailing experience.
Passengers can rest assured that their driver will take them exactly where they need to go – and they won’t end up paying more than expected.
More reliable ETAs means the next journey can be scheduled faster for drivers, so they can take on more rides.
Riders find a 3 word address in our app, online, in travel guides or receive them from friends.
Riders enter a 3 word address into the search bar through voice or text, just like a street address.
We convert 3 word addresses to GPS coordinates and send drivers a pin to follow, like usual.

Sony Innovation Fund invests in what3words
“what3words has solved the considerable problem of entering a precise location into a machine by voice. The dramatic rise in voice-activated systems calls for a simple voice geocoder that works across all digital platforms and channels, and can be written down and spoken easily.”
