The Uber app goes way past taxis — with some users now in a position to get motorcycles, rental cars, and public transit tickets, corporate officers introduced Wednesday.
CEO Dara Khosrowshahi is in Washington, DC, to tout an expanded app in that town that includes dockless motorcycles operated via Brooklyn-based JUMP, which Uber bought previous this week.
The app corporate will now additionally be offering rental cars choices and subway and educate price tag gross sales, mentioned Khosrowshahi.
“Having a greater variety of transportation modes at your fingertips helps make it increasingly easy to live without a car,” he wrote in a weblog put up at the Uber web page. “That’s why we want to provide alternatives to personal car ownership by bringing together multiple modes of transportation right in our app.”
It’s now not but transparent if any of those parts will likely be to be had for New York City citizens any time quickly.
JUMP used to be one in all a dozen distributors to provide a plan to the town. Department of Transportation officers are weighing the proposals now.
Uber may be partnering with Masabi, an organization that permits riders to shop for educate, subway and bus tickets in the course of the app. Current Masabi towns come with Boston, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles, however they don’t but be offering MTA tickets. And, for now, the rental automotive choice is handiest to be had in San Francisco.
