Uber is looking to be virtually a one-stop transportation shopping app, saying on Wednesday it will add new services, including car-sharing and train tickets.
Uber took another step toward becoming the king of mobility-on-demand on Wednesday by integrating electric bicycle rental, public transit, and auto sharing into its mobile app.
The organization declared a partnership with Masabi, an public transit mobile startup. That's why we want to provide alternatives to personal vehicle ownership by bringing together multiple modes of transportation right in our app.
In a speech, Khosrowshahi said the initiatives are designed so that Uber moves beyond just being a vehicle service and provides city residents with options on a variety of modes of transportation.
Rescue by Flare Emergency Response will offer free first aid trainings to Uber drivers on a monthly basis while drivers visiting MP-Shah Hospital desk will receive regular free medical checkups.
Uber stated it considers bicycles and public transport for an easy method to cut back on traffic and environmental congestion. Jump CEO Ryan Rzepecki said the collaboration, known as Uber Bike, will help Jump "be part of a multi-global platform that includes car-share, public transit, biking and shared rides".
Uber partner organisations include the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA), MP Shah Hospital, emergency services company Flare, auto dealer Toyotsu, Huawei, Techno, Essilor, Kingsway, and Telkom Kenya.
And Uber Movement will expand into 12 cities - Amsterdam, Bangalore, Brisbane, Cairo, Hyderabad, Melbourne, Mumbai, Nairobi, New Delhi, Perth, Pittsburgh and Toronto - bringing that program's total up to 21. "We're excited to move forward with cities".
Under Uber's new leadership we want to be a better partner to city planners and regulators, so we hope this data will help give them valuable insights for the future.
