Ride-hailing major Uber looking to start its bus service in India

San Francisco-based Uber is planning to launch its bus service in India, after piloting its bus service in geographies such as Latin America and the Middle East.

A source aware of the development said, “While Uber is piloting this feature in international geographies, India is most likely a country where they will be planning to launch this service.”

“Uber will first launch the bus service in Cairo and then look at releasing the service in India. Twelve months after the launch in Cairo,” the source added.

The ride-hailing major has partnered with agencies to sell tickets for public transit systems in geographies like United States, Canada, Britain, and Australia. The company has secured over 20 such deals.

Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber, said, “We share many of the same goals as the cities we serve: reducing individual car ownership, expanding transportation access, and helping governments plan transportation.”

Earlier, Khosrowshahi had made a public announcement that it aims to transform from a ride-hailing app to a ‘transportation platform’.

During Uber Elevate Summit in Washington, the company also said it is working on aviation service.

Stan Swaintek, Director of Operations, Aviation, Uber, stated, “We are fundamentally changing mobility and the way people are moving in cities so that they won’t be restricted to congested pathways. In doing so, we are creating a valuable service. The idea, however, is to do it in safe and reliable ways.”
