LATEST NEWS – San Francisco-based ride hailing company Uber has launched a service that will allow Indian users to hire cabs on an hourly basis, in an attempt to take on local taxi operators and rival Ola which launched a similar service last year.
The service dubbed UberHIRE will be available across New Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Vizag and Nagpur. Users will be able to utilise the service for a maximum of 12 hours and will be available only between 6 am and 10 pm.
“UberHIRE is a time-based Uber that’s available on-demand, to let you explore and travel around cities knowing that your Uber will wait for you. It’s perfect for travellers exploring a new city, senior citizens who need to make trips punctuated with multiple stop overs, or for business travellers who have multiple meetings,” the company said in a statement.
