Back in January, Uber first announced the new Uber Transit feature. In addition to the ability to book car rides, you can now find the fastest route to your destination with real-time transit information, routes, and directions. Sometimes it can be faster or cheaper to take public transportation than an Uber, Uber Transit feature helps you in such situations.
Uber is now expanding this feature to London where Uber users can now get real-time bus and tube times along with other train, tram, riverboat, Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and Overground access.
“With 3.5 million Londoners relying on Uber, we recognise the important responsibilities that come with being a good partner to this great global city. We share many of the same goals as the cities that we serve and are committed to addressing the same challenges: reducing individual car ownership, expanding transportation access and tackling air pollution,” said David Reich, Uber’s head of transit.
