Despite Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi vowing to rein in costs at the ride share by slowing down hiring, Khosrowshahi said Uber's new features fall under two categories: transporting people and food delivery.

Uber Charter will allow U.S. travelers to book a bus or passenger van with the Uber app starting this summer. And Vouchers for Events will make it easy to cover the cost of rides for your guests.

Uber Travel is available now and allows users to reserve rides for every part of their trip easily through the app by connecting with their Gmail account.
