Cab aggregator Uber is launching a new service named UberHire, which would enable you to hire a cab for up to 12 hours.
Following a successful pilot in Kochi, the service is being rolled out on Monday in eight more cities: New Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Vizag and Nagpur. It will be expanded to other cities later.The service will let passengers make multiple stops in a time-based model within the city.
The minimum time frame for which the cab can be hired for, is 2 hours and the maximum is up to 12 hours. The minimum fare would be Rs 449-649 depending on the city, post which the riders will be charged at Rs 2 per minute and Rs 12 per kilometre, with no surge pricing.
A rider will be able to see the UberHIRE option in the Uber app. The final payment will be made in CASH only for now.
