Journeys on UK coach operator National Express can now be booked with Uber as part of Uber Travel's expansion into rail and coach travel.

Andrew Brem, general manager at Uber UK, said: “Uber users have been able to book rides, bikes, boat services and scooters on the Uber app for a number of years now."

Expanding Uber Travel will create "the ultimate door-to-door travel experience", he added.

Chris Hardy, managing director at National Express UK Coach, said “Being part of the Uber Travel expansion means that Uber users can easily access safe and reliable coach travel."

Customers who book their coach or rail bookings on the Uber app will also receive 10% of the cost of their booking back as Uber Credits, for use on future rides, travel bookings or Uber Eats deliveries.
