Uber launches new revamped Uber Driver app in India

Uber launches new revamped Uber Driver app in India

Khosrowshahi, who joined Uber in 2017 to help the company get back on track following a series of scandals, appeared at an event in Washington, discuss the company's heightened commitment to expanding ride services in congested cities.

Uber envisions being able to bring data, on-demand transportation and solving for real-time transportation needs to public transit, Khosrowshahi said.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has said that the company still believes in the future prospects for self-driving cars.

It's part of an aggressive push Uber is making to position itself as a general mobility platform, rather than the simple ride-hailing app that propelled it into a $70 billion commodity. Uber also announced it acquired Jump on Monday. Jump Bikes operates the business in San Francisco and DC.

Uber's second major expansion relates to auto rentals. "We share numerous same goals as the 600 cities we serve, and are committed to addressing the same challenges: Reducing individual vehicle ownership, expanding transportation access and helping governments plan future transportation investments".

Jump confirmed that the acquisition would offer Uber customers more modes of transportations which will enable people to have a life without owning a vehicle. "While 180 Days was about correcting missteps of the past, we also needed to think longer term, and the obvious place to start was the Driver app", says Khosrowshahi. Except instead of hopping into the back seat with a driver at the wheel, you're renting someone's vehicle for a short amount of time. Last year, a Volvo XC90 from Uber was hit by the driver of another vehicle. "Now you can take a bike to rent your auto and go buy groceries". If people can reliably know when a bus will show up, he said, "we think that's going to drive use and ultimately that's going to make it even better to live in a city like this one".

For mass transit, the San Francisco startup said it would allow app users to see various options on its app and would launch a partnership with the e-ticketing service Masabi that would eventually allow the Uber app to be used instead of tickets or passes.

Residents of San Francisco will soon see something new in the Uber app: the option to rent a auto.
