Uber to launch car pooling facility in Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Sep 21 (IANS) Cab aggregator services company Uber on Monday said that it was soon going to launch its car-pooling service named UberPool here, while keeping in touch with the traffic police department here to increase the utilisation of cars on the road.

“Our vision for UberPool means helping solve some of the toughest problems cities are facing today, whether it’s congestion, pollution, or lack of access to transportation. We are working tirelessly towards that vision as we aim to transform urban mobility for over 1.2 billion Indians,” said Uber Bengaluru general manager Bhavik Rathod.

“With UberPool, we’ll aim to achieve this vision, one we share with policy makers, to make Bengaluru city of the future – one that looks a whole lot greener, cleaner, and more efficient thanks to fewer cars and more shared rides,” he added.

The new service will help commuters can share a ride and split the costa with another person who happens to be requesting a ride along a similar route. Riders can save up to 50 percent while adding only a few minutes of time per trip, Uber said.

“With the lower prices, people can move past car ownership, as taking Uber becomes less expensive than using and maintaining a personal vehicle,” it added.

According to Uber, the new service will be rolled out in other cities as well.
