CHENNAI: Uber, the call taxi service provider, on Wednesday has launched an on demand 24x7 ‘Auto Rentals’ service in Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Pune that will allow riders to make multiple stops along a journey.
Nitish Bhushan, Head of Marketplace and Categories, Uber India said that this was an India-first innovation and a prime example of how we leverage technology to benefit both riders and drivers. All rides will conform to health guidelines, along with providing the highest possible safety standards.
The service allows riders to do more by the hour at an affordable price point of Rs 159 for a one-hour or ten km package with the option of selecting from multiple hourly packages that can be booked up to a maximum of 8 hours.
“To help riders and drivers feel safe and comfortable, Uber has launched a comprehensive set of safety measures, such as the Go Online Checklist, a mandatory mask policy for both riders and drivers, pre-trip mask verification selfies for drivers, mandatory driver education and an updated cancellation policy allowing both riders and driver to cancel trips if they don’t feel safe”, he said.
