Uber has announced that customers in Delhi can now use the app to plan journeys on the Delhi Metro and on local bus services.
Moreover, they will soon be able to purchase train tickets from within the Uber app as well. As per Uber, after riders enter a destination, they’ll have the option to see ‘Public Transport’ as an option alongside ‘UberGo’, ‘Premier’, and ‘UberPool’. After selecting the ‘Public Transport’ feature, riders will see the fastest and cheapest routes, as well as real-time schedules such as departure time for public transportation. This also includes Metro and buses and walking directions, to and from nearby Metro stations and bus stops.
