Uber Partners Delhi Metro for Kiosks in 50 Stations by H1 2019

Ride-hailing giant Uber on Wednesday said it entered into the second-phase of its Venture with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to set up kiosks in 50 more Subway Channels by the first half of 2019.

The first stage of the partnership involving Uber and DMRC, which is geared toward improving first-mile/last-mile connectivity for the riders, kicked off lately where kiosks were put up at Sikanderpur, Dwarka Sec-21 and Rajiv Chowk metro channels.

Within this partnership, Uber will set up kiosks across designated metro channels to ease riders to reserve an Uber ride even without the mobile app.

Uber said it would also set signages at chosen locations in the channels and also have an ear-marked area for Driver-Partners to help create a committed pickup area.

“DMRC has always maintained the interest of its commuters in the centre of its own functioning.

“With this collaborative venture with cab aggregators like Uber and Ola, we are looking forward to encouraging an increasing number of people to use the Metro and have ease of accessibility for the last mile connectivity,” Singh added.

This is Uber’s third master in 2018 to ease easy commute choices to metro riders.

“In Uber, we’ve always believed that complementing public transit with Uber’s handy and dependable rides may make cities more accessible and sustainable,” said Madhu Kannan, Chief Business Officer, Asia Pacific, Uber.

“By making it easy to travel to and from subway stations, we can alleviate the demand for parking and create initial and last mile connectivity simpler,” Kannan added.
