"The way people use transport is changing and through partnerships with cities and leading transit authorities like the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, Uber's technology can help millions of people make smarter shared mobility choices that save time and money while reducing their environmental impact".
This announcement comes shortly after Uber won a public bid to offer its mobility services across 210 Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) stations.
The company said it is also rolling out a software update to its app to include real-time public transportation options in the Uber app. No matter where you want to go, or what your price point is, we have a solution to meet your needs. This means that the riders would get the ability to not just book an Uber cab but also get a metro ticket directly from the Uber app. "It's a team in India that developed this app, and essentially its designed for low bandwidth and for phones that have less memory, less speed now it's been expanded in many markets in the Middle East and Africa". "India can actually be an innovator at mass for the developing countries in the world and can be a trailblazer and today we can look back at a day when innovation was accelerated", Khosrowshahi said.
Last year Uber said it would increase its investments in India after it sold its Southeast Asia business to Singapore's Grab Holdings.
