Uber’s New Feature Tracks Your Flight & Books A Cab Before The Flight Lands

Cab-aggregator Uber has launched a new feature under the already existing Uber Reserve. The new Uber feature will track your flights and book a cab for you even before your flight lands. So, passengers can relax on the flights, knowing a ride will be waiting outside the airport. The feature not only tracks the flights but also accommodates early arrivals and delays. Moreover,  the cab will wait at the curbside for a complimentary waiting time of 60 minutes, so you can complete your airport formalities and get your luggage patiently. Currently, this feature is launched at 20 airports across the USA on Uber Black and Uber Black SUV. Let’s hope it comes to India soon.

Uber Is Offering Free Rides To Vaccination Centres

After the second phase of vaccination was launched, Uber had stated in a blog post, “These free rides will be deployed to help vulnerable citizens travel to and from authorised vaccination centres in the second phase of the vaccination drive. Any Indian citizen above 60 and 45+ age group with co-morbidities can now utilise these free rides to travel to and from the nearest authorised vaccination centre through easily redeemable promo codes.” Now the third phase of vaccination has also started in India, to vaccinate everyone above 18 years of age. The rides scheme is already operational in places like Delhi, Kerala, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chandigarh and Uttarakhand, among others.
