CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said onstage that Uber was "here to stay in India" - a familiar promise that he made in Southeast Asia early past year before selling the local business to Grab a month later - but avoided a question about the future of its food delivery service UberEats' India business.

"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.

Uber's CEO Dara Khosrowshahi launched public transport feature in Delhi.

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.

The partnership, however, will not be exclusive to Uber. The model demonstrates the breadth of first and last mile options with organised and dedicated pick-up and drop-off areas to complement public transportation. Sometimes auto ownership is a trap that prevents innovation.

India is a very competitive market with demanding consumers but its "profitability characteristics" are improving, Uber chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi told reporters on Tuesday.

Dr. Mangu Singh, Managing Director, DMRC, pointed out the Delhi Metro network today spans over 377 km with 274 stations, covering not only most parts of the capital city but also NCR cities like Gurugram, Faridabad, Ballabgarh, and Bahadurgarh in Haryana and Noida and Ghaziabad in UP.

Pradeep Parameswaran, president for Uber's India and South Asia operations, said recent amendments in the Motor Vehicles Act will help the company focus on innovations and scale, rather than facing regulatory uncertainty.

Uber is also set to hire more in India.
