Uber is now offering London public transport updates on its app.

Uber
Firm’s long-term goal is to ‘help people replace their car with their phone’

The move comes in a bid to promote public transport with a wider aim to reduce air pollutants and discourage private car ownership through making public transport information more accessible. The app will provide users with real-time information on an array of public transport services including bus.

Jamie Heywood, the app’s Regional General Manager for Northern and Eastern Europe, told the Evening Standard: “London is home to the world’s most iconic public transport network, and we’re excited to now provide live transit information in the Uber app.

“Over time, it’s our goal to help people replace their car with their phone by offering a range of mobility options – whether cars, bikes or public transport – all in the Uber app.”

In response to the recent introduction of Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) and Low Emission Zones (LEZ) Uber has also increased fare charges by £1.
