Uber announced its launch in Patna today, enabling consumers in the city to book rides on UberGO by simply downloading the Uber app. With this launch, Uber has expanded its footprint to 36 cities across South Asia.
The Patna launch is in line with Uber’s vision to offer affordable and reliable transportation to millions of riders, and livelihood opportunities for hundreds of thousands of driver partners across the region. The UberGo service will offer riders in Patna a low cost, speedy and utilitarian solution to get around the city quickly and will help deliver a stress-free alternative for daily commuters.
Commenting on the Patna launch, which comes almost two years after Uber launched operations in Lucknow, Mr Prabhjeet Singh, Head of Cities, Uber India & South Asia, said, “We are thrilled to announce our presence in Patna! With this launch, Uber scales its presence in the fast-growing state of Bihar. Uber’s world-class technology will help provide an affordable and reliable mobility option to Patna’s residents while creating micro-entrepreneurship opportunities for those who sign up as driver partners.”
