Uber added to the application for travel the option of choosing public transport

Uber continues to develop its own service, offering new features for users who want to easily and conveniently get from point A to point B. After experimenting with electric scooters and bicycles, the platform added the ability to reach the desired address using public transport.

Uber does not mock users, as one might think, after reading the previous paragraph. Just as an experiment in Denver (USA), the app will show on the map not only free cars and the estimated cost of the trip, but also options for going to the same point on public transport. The system will show nearby routes, as well as display on the map in real time arriving at the bus stop and train.

Thus, the user will be able to compare on the screen of one application how much time and money he will spend on the trip in each of the cases and choose the most suitable option for himself. To make the trip even more convenient, Uber is going to add the ability to buy an electronic ticket for travel in the selected transport, so that the user does not even need to spend time on it at the box office or transport.

So far, the new Transit feature works only in Denver within the Regional Transportation District (RTA) zone, however, Uber is negotiating with other US megalopolises to introduce a similar system.
