First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Uber has launched its journey planning feature ‘Public Transport’ in New Delhi in a move which integrates its app with the Indian city’s metro and bus services.
Uber says riders will be provided with the fastest and cheapest routes, and real-time schedules – including departure times for public transport and walking directions to and from metro stations and bus stops.
The announcement follows an agreement for Uber to provide mobility services across 210 Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) stations.
Uber is now working with DMRC to showcase how public transport can be integrated into its plans to offer a range of first- and last-mile options with dedicated pick-up and drop-off areas to complement public transportation.
