Uber is the FutureAbout is the future
Uber's vision of the future is that every mode of transport is a fair play.
Über wants to take you where you're going, even if you don't want to use fossils to get there. Uber announces that its application will soon offer several new transportation alternatives, in addition to the long-promised stand-alone bicycle tailing, following reports that the bicycle tailing business had purchased Jump, among them bicycle sharings, public transportation alternatives and peer-to-peer rental.
"More and more Uber will not only take a ride, but also move from point A to point B," Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said at an upcoming meeting at the Uber Driver Center in Washington, D.C., a news announcement.
Mr Khosrowshahi said the Uber application would soon give Uber surfers easy entry to the 12,000 dozen homeless GPS-enabled bicycles that they have just won from Jump and that are already present in 50 towns in six states. Such diversification is an immediate step for Uber; as customers become aware of the CO2 burden of their shipping option, they choose low-emission modes such as cycling or bulk shipping.
Since some " future towns " are planning to completely or partly exempt automobiles from the urban environment, it will also help the business in the future to keep its footprint in conurbations. About has also said that thanks to a relationship with the e-ticketing Masabi franchise, local transport passengers can use the Uber application instead of a fare or fare card, beginning in Boston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, San Francisco and Europe.
On the other hand, local transport networks are not exactly fast at implementing technology changes. Look at how long it took the New York Metro Transit Authority to allow portable ticket handling facilities for commute trains (which train drivers will say are faulty and unreliable) and test the same for metro drivers (who only work in...two locations).
Then there are the consequences of an episode in which an autonomic car from Uber kills a passenger in Arizona. Ubers self-propelled cars have been forbidden by the state, although we have not yet seen where the consequences of this event will take place. Overall, Uber seems optimistic that now is the right moment to incorporate all the world's transports into a unified one.
Perhaps they will also lead you to ignore the company's past mistakes and make Uber a bad word for travelling of all kinds.
