Uber to experiment with intra-city buses, quadricycles and electric 2-and 3-wheelers in India

Uber Technologies is experimenting with intra-city buses, quadricycles and electric scooters and auto-rickshaws in the country. The company’s shift coincides with its plan to expand its presence from 36 cities to 50 cities by December-end.

Pradeep Parameswaran, President (India & South Asia), Uber, said, "The company will add capacity only if there is a demand to absorb it. Why we had not gone to many of the cities earlier was because we had limited relevance there. But now we have a diversified portfolio. We will bring about multi-modal transportation options."

"In Trichy, Uber only offers auto-rickshaws and no cars and also expects to add more auto-rickshaws riders than the car in Sri Lanka," he added.

Uber is planning to pilot electric two- and three-wheelers in India. The company is further testing extending intra-city bus services to inter-city services in places where only cars are available.

Parameswaran further stated, "We are exploring high capacity 12 or 30-40 seater vehicles. Some of the routes will be fixed but for others, we will use technology to have variable routes based on demand."
