Uber is validating Car-pooling and may open new era in cab service

Uber is validating Car-pooling and may open new era in cab service
UberPool will launch soon in beta in select cities in India, starting with Bangalore, to gain insights from commuter adoption and usage. The service is currently present in San Francisco, New York City, Boston, Austin and Paris and assists commuters to get around their cities, reducing the number of cars on the road, congestion in cities and parking challenge.

Following the recent car-pooling initiative by the Bangalore Traffic Police to increase the utilization of cars on the road, Uber's carpooling service will make an attempt to make fewer cars on roads a reality. Bhavik Rathod, GM Bangalore, Uber said, "India is a top global priority for Uber along with China and UberPool. Today, we're thrilled to announce that we'll be bringing UberPool to India very soon."

Launching soon in Bangalore, with uberPool, you will be able to share a ride—and split the cost—with another person who happens to be requesting a ride along a similar route in your city. When we find a match, we notify you of your co-rider’s first name. The beauty, though, is that you still get Uber’s signature on-demand convenience and reliability at the tap of a button.

UberPOOL Benefits to people

With UberPOOL we’ll aim to achieve our shared vision to make Bangalore a city of the future – one that looks a whole lot greener, cleaner, and more efficient thanks to fewer cars and more shared rides. Reducing the number of cars on the roads is beneficial not only to the environment, but also helps reduce traffic and congestion currently faced by commuters in our city.

How uberPOOL works?

REQUEST uberPOOL
Enter your destination in the app.

GET MATCHED UP
During your trip, you can be matched with another rider traveling along a similar route.

SHARE AND SPLIT
Riding solo? Travel with a co-rider and save. Two or more people? Request a different Uber option please.

BE ON TIME
The first rider may already be in the car, so be ready to hop in when your Uber arrives. You’ll be dropped off in the most efficient order. Enjoy the ride!

“India is a top global priority for Uber along with China and UberPOOL… Our vision for UberPOOL means helping solve some of the toughest problems cities are facing today, whether it’s congestion, pollution, or lack of access to transportation,” said Bhavik Rathod, GM Bangalore, Uber. Progressively, Uber will launch the car-pooling service in other Indian cities.

"Riders can save up to 50%, while adding only a few minutes of time per trip. With the lower prices, people can move past car ownership, as taking Uber becomes less expensive than using and maintaining a personal vehicle. And that impact on congestion can be powerful," Uber said.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

The above image shows Merchants Authorized by you (Screenshot updated), where you can see Uber if you have already added paytm with uber.

How much I will earn by attaching my car with UBER or OLA

This is very common question now a days in India. Some of the Quora posts hints that OLA/UBER drivers are earning in lakhs per month which is not the case now.

Competition is getting tougher, 100's of new drivers are joining the platform. Now they don't get enough rides sometimes only then UBER/OLA pay them minimum amount for the day.(Already decided amount based upon business).
