Cab-hailing company Uber, which now operates in 29 cities across India, will commence UberMoto, its bike-sharing platform, in Amritsar and Kanpur this week.
UberMoto currently operates in 9 Indian cities and it was Uber’s India-first innovation.
The San Francisco-based company will also revive its auto-hailing service in Bangalore and Pune, which was stopped two years ago.
According to reports, Uber will be expanding its outstation services across major Indian cities to compete with rival Ola.
“We are very proud of the impact that UberMoto is having because it is an even more affordable and convenient mode of transportation to get around, it takes 75% less space than a car and you can zip through traffic,” said Prabhjeet Jeet Singh, GM, Uber.
UberMoto is so far the cheapest service from Uber and has become a livelihood option for a lot of people. It has completed 5 million trips within two years of its launch.
Uber is likely to launch UberMoto in more Indian cities by the end of this year.
