Uber launches bike sharing service

US online taxi hailing company Uber announced the launch of its bike-sharing product, UberMOTO, in Dhaka yesterday. Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, skipper of the Bangladesh national cricket team, took the first MOTO ride in yesterday morning. With the launch, Uber will take another step forward in its efforts to redefine urban mobility in Dhaka that it started 11 months back with the launch of UberX and more recently with UberPREMIER, the company said.

It said the bike sharing product will bring another option to riders in Dhaka to get from point A to Point B at the tap of a button. Arpit Mundra, general manager of Uber Dhaka said, "We are excited to be able to use our technology to not only contribute greatly towards improving urban mobility in Dhaka and in cutting congestion but also be instrumental to creating thousands of economic opportunities for the youth in the state."

According to the company, riders receive bike details just as they do for other Uber rides, as well as all standard safety features before, during and after the ride including GPS tracking, two-way feedback and the ability to share trip details with family and friends.
