Transportation giant Uber has announced a collaboration with Hyderabad Rail Metro Limited (HRML) and L&T Metro, reports Metro Rail News.
This partnership aims at providing commuters the real-time information along with complete directions of their preferred metro trains within the Uber application itself.
This can aid the travellers to pre-plan their journeys according to the situation, even modifying their routes to choose the best possible alternative.
KBV Reddy the MD and CEO of L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited said, “We recognise that public transport and Uber can be a powerful combination as riders will have information on metro and bus service schedules to make smart choices, along with options to complete the first and last mile of their journey.”
He added, “We hope with this new initiative, the people who wouldn’t regularly consider public transport will realise how easy and affordable it can be.”
Uber had already joined force with Delhi Metro to provide similar services back in October 2019. Maybe, the M-Indicator application exists for somewhat of a similar service containing contemporaneous, regular information of suburban/local trains in Mumbai could be drawn as a parallel to Uber’s alliance with Hyderabad Rail Metro.
