Uber, which aims to turn itself into a “super app” for travel, announced on Wednesday that it will bring buses, planes, trains and rental cars to its UK app this year. If all goes well, the intention is to extend the change to other countries.
While not providing these travel services, the Company will enable users to make reservations through the Application. This will be possible because Uber plans to announce several partnerships in the coming months.
Uber wants to increase app usage
In the announcement, Uber said the changes would increase use of the apps among its users in the UK, which also has an alternative to using platforms like Bolt and Free Now.
It should be noted that the United Kingdom, outside the United States, is one of the largest markets for Uber. The head office of the company is located in California (USA).
One-stop shop for all users’ travel needs
Jamie Heywood, U.K. head of Uber, said the company wants to become a one-stop-shop for all travel needs of Uber users.
Heywood noted that for years, people have been able to book boat services, bikes, tours, and scooters. So the inclusion of trains and buses is a natural progression.
Heywood added that the company plans to integrate flights later this year. The goal, going forward, is to include hotels, and to integrate key partners into the app to build a great door-to-door travel experience.
In addition, Uber also intends to allow users to purchase Eurostar train tickets through the platform.
