Uber banded together with Colorado’s Regional Transportation District to empower Denver riders to be the main around the world “to see and consider transit routes presented within the Uber app.”
Denver clients of the famous rideshare application Uber will before long observe new feature – the capacity to perceive what mass travel choices are accessible to take them to their goal and the headings to arrive.
Uber banded together with Colorado’s Regional Transportation District to empower Denver riders to be the main around the world “to see and consider travel courses exhibited inside the Uber application.”
The partnership was reported on Thursday in a joint press release from RTD and Uber.
“Establishing partnerships with providers such as Uber enables the transit agency to best meet the needs, demands and expectations of a growing population, at a time when the industry is in a state of change,” a release announcing the partnership read.
This partnership is the first of its kind for Uber; the rideshare giant said it is using Denver as a launch pad.
“This is Uber’s first in-app integration with public transit, and we’re excited it’s happening in Denver, thanks to our partnership with RTD,” said David Reich, Uber’s head of transit.
Accessing this feature within the Uber application will be made basic – after riders enter a goal, they will consider “Transit” to be a choice.From there, users will be able to see available transit routes, real-time schedules, and walking directions to and from transit stations.
Uber said eventually, Denver riders will be able to purchase and use RTD tickets through its app.
