Uber launches corporate shuttle service for Indian businesses in major Indian cities

Mumbai/UNI: App-based cab service provider Uber on Wednesday launched Uber Corporate Shuttle, a new way for companies to help employees get to and from work as covid prevails.

Uber Corporate Shuttle is a customised commute service for companies, offering seating capacity for anywhere between 10-50 employees in a single vehicle. The service helps companies deliver on their sustainability goals by helping decongest cities, reduce pollution and free up office parking spaces.

The newly launched service includes the 'Go Online Checklist', a mandatory mask policy for both riders and drivers, pre-trip mask verification selfies for drivers and mandatory driver education on safety SOPs.

The service will be available across Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai and Bangalore.

Abhinav Mittoo, Head of Uber for Business, India & South Asia, said, ''At Uber, we are focused on meeting the changing needs of our customers. Uber Corporate Shuttle helps companies put their employees first.

"They get to and from work safely, without the stress of traffic jams, expense of parking and car maintenance. And by making it easy for employees to give up their cars, the service can reduce congestion, pollution and emissions in our cities. It is an honour to help India get back to work safely after a tough 20 months.''

A significant share of the work related to the technology and product build-out for Uber Corporate Shuttle is being led by Uber’s technology team based out of Bangalore.
