Ride-hailing giant Uber on Wednesday said it entered into the second-phase of Its Own Venture with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to Install kiosks in 50 more Subway Channels by the first half 2019.
The first stage of the partnership involving Uber and DMRC, that is geared toward improving first-mile/last-mile connectivity for those riders, kicked off lately where kiosks were put up in Sikanderpur, Dwarka Sec-21 and Rajiv Chowk metro channels.
Within the venture, Uber will put up kiosks across designated metro channels to ease riders to reserve an Uber ride without the mobile program.
Uber stated it would also set signages at chosen locations from the channels and also have an ear-marked place for Driver-Partners to help create a committed pickup location.
“DMRC has ever maintained the attention of its commuters in the middle of its own functioning.
“With this collaborative venture with taxi aggregators such as Uber and Ola, we’re excited about encouraging an increasing number of people to utilize the Metro and have ease of accessibility for the last mile connectivity,” Singh added.
That can be Uber’s third master in 2018 to ease easy commute choices to subway riders.
“In Uber, we’ve always thought that complementing public transit with Uber’s handy and dependable rides may make cities more sustainable and accessible,” said Madhu Kannan, Chief Business Officer, Asia Pacific, Uber.
“By making it effortless to travel to and from subway stations, we could alleviate the demand for parking and create initial and last mile connectivity simpler,” Kannan added.
