Uber adds e-rickshaws to platform, deploys 100 such vehicles in Delhi
Uber on Tuesday said Delhi had become the first Indian city where the ride hailing major had deployed 100 e-rickshaws on its platform. The vehicles have been deployed across 26 Delhi Metro stations, offering riders sustainable mobility solutions for better first and last-mile connectivity and short distance commutes.
Uber said the launch was in line with the company's recently announced global commitment to make all rides on its platform 100 per cent emission-free by 2040 through zero-emission vehicles and the integration of public transport and micromobility.
Riders will be able to book the micromobility product on the Uber app from Tuesday and the service will be available at stations on Delhi Metro's blue line, including Ashok Park Main, Dabri Mor, ESI Basaidarapur, Janakpuri East and Uttam Nagar East, among others.
