Ride-sharing company Uber on Monday announced the launch of its PREMIER service in Hyderabad and Vizag.
“PREMIER has enhanced the core experience of ridesharing, one that’s as good as a rider’s personal car. We will continue to listen to our riders and driver partners and work towards making Uber a preferred choice of commute.” Shailesh Sawlani, General Manager-West, Uber India, said in a statement.
The company started Uber PREMIER in Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Lucknow and Delhi and has now expanded it.
A PREMIER ride will come in select economy-range sedans, driven by best-in-class driver partners endorsed by riders. The services will be offered as an in-app product option that serves as an upgrade to their current uberX experience.
Apart from PREMIER, Uber currently provides uberMOTO, uberPOOL, uberGO and uberX ride options.
Last month, Uber launched a light web-based version of Uber – m.uber.com – in India that will help people book their rides from computers or tablets.
So if you are at a place with no access to smartphone, you can book your Uber from your laptop. The lighter web-version became available in India from Friday. The company also introduced three new app features – offline search, request for a guest and call to ride. Offline search is for the riders using the app in limited network areas. Currently, the company is piloting this feature only in Pune.
