As if they couldn’t be of anymore service, Uber is now adding motorcycles to its new fleet of vehicles.
The company on Tuesday announced a new motorbike service called UberMoto, through which passengers can grab rides on motorcycles with an Uber driver holding down the steering. The service has began as a pilot program in Bangkok,Thailand, a city saturated with all types of automobiles and masive traffic jams.
The process for hailing an Uber motorcycle is similar to hailing an Uber car. Passengers select the UberMoto option via the Uber mobile app and then enter the pickup location and method of payment. The driver’s details pop up on the screen, so the passenger can identify the person. The passenger is given a helmet to wear to conform to Bangkok safety regulations.
Uber, the San Francisco-based company, operates in 350 cities in 60 countries.
