Uber, in a first-of-its-kind innovation , now allows users in India to lease a cab for half a daylight without any rise pricing.
After successfully piloting the services offered, UberHIRE, in the southern metropoli of Kochi, the company has now became it operational in eight more Indian metropolis New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Vizag and Nagpur.
The service is evidently Uber’s answer to its rapidly-growing Indian rival Ola’s rental work, Ola Rental, that launched last year.
The minimum fare on UberHIRE would be Rs 449 -6 49 ($ 7- $10) depending on the city for two hours and up to 30 kilometers( 18.6 miles ). And beyond that, equestrians would be charged at Rs 2 per hour and Rs 12( 17 pennies) per kilometer, said Uber in a statement.
“UberHIRE places the unique commuting needs of equestrians in India, specially that of sightseers, business travelers, senior citizen, and acting professionals by letting them book an Uber and use it for up to 12 hours, ” said, Apurva Dalal, Head of Engineering, Uber India.
Uber has heated up its expansion in India, its fastest-growing grocery, to take the competition to Ola.
Late last year, it took its bike-sharing busines, UberMOTO, to more metropolis and prior to that it propelled the ‘Dial an Uber’ facet that allowed users to work a cab offline. It is also returning its food-delivery work, UberEATS, to India soon.
UberHIRE reeled out on Monday and is a cash-only work at the moment.
