Gurgaon – Get bikesharing on uberMOTO!



Gurgaon, your easiest way to get around arrives today. We are excited to pilot Uber’s bikesharing product–uberMOTO in Gurgaon as the city observes ‘Car-Free Tuesday’ to help reduce congestion. This follows our agreement with the government of Haryana to introduce technology-based ride-sharing services in the state.
uberMOTO works towards the vision of reducing congestion by helping fill every empty seat on the bikes on road. It enables riders to push a button and share a motorbike ride within minutes. It’s a great way for people to save time and money on short trips across town and provides last mile connectivity–especially to and from the metro stations.
It will help cut congestion in Gurgaon by getting people out of cars when they don’t need to use them, and by encouraging motorbike drivers to share their ride. It follows the launch of Uber’s carpooling service, which is designed to get more people into fewer cars.
At Uber, our goal is to provide safe, reliable and affordable transportation at the tap of a button. uberMOTO will help passengers get to where they want to go more quickly and at a lower price–and with less congestion over time. We can’t wait to get going.
Choose the uberMOTO option. Enter your pickup location and request for a ride
We’ll show your driver’s details straight away – name, photo and the details of the motorbike
All riders and drivers have to wear a helmet in Gurgaon by law. Your uberMOTO driver will have a spare one for you.
Uber’s standard product safety features are in place before, during and after every trip, including GPS tracking, 2-way feedback and the ability to share trip details with family and friends.
At the end of the trip, you can share the cost by cash or mobile wallet. In either case we’ll email you an electronic receipt.
At launch uberMOTO will be available in the below areas in Gurgaon – between 7AM and 9PM, with fares as low as ₹3/KM*. We will continue to extend uberMOTO’s coverage over time.
To support the Government in its de-congestion initiatives, Uber will not charge any service fee for the duration of this pilot and will submit a key-findings report to the Government, analyzing the benefits of bikesharing in the City.

Remember the days when your pocket money was ₹10 and it covered pretty much everything? From a meal at the canteen to your last mile commute. Back in the day, you could accomplish a lot with a ₹10 note. Well, it’s time to start keeping it handy again.

For this week only, all uberMOTO rides across Gurgaon will cost ₹10, flat. That’s right – no promo codes, no cash-backs. Just request a ride, hop off at your destination (within minutes) and pay ₹10. No questions asked. It’s probably the easiest way to get around your neighbourhood and Gurgaon. Even if it’s a quick trip to the local store, request and hop on to an uberMOTO and beat the Gurgaon heat, for just ₹10.
Keep your ₹10 notes handy

This is kind of insane considering how hot it is now in Gurgaon.

Finally decided to test UberMoto today... Was stuck at a place where no Uber or Jugnoo was close enough. UberMoto was a bit far as well but being a two wheeler I assumed it would reach me rather quickly.



The good part...
The guy gave me a hair net and a helmet. Reached home safe.

The bad part...
The guy arrived in around 20 minutes. He could not locate my position on the map properly and kept on riding away from me. Eventually he realized his mistake and came back rather fast. Apologized. Was polite enough.



I made the mistake of driving to the InfoCity-I area at around noon. The traffic was bad. And there was no parking in the MCG/HUDA office. Spent 20 minutes trying to find a safe location for the car. When I landed in the office, the lunch had begun so had to wait 30 minutes to submit an application. Insane. Realized my mistake with the car. Had to go to another HUDA office. Instead of driving directly there. Came back home. Parked the car. Ordered an auto. I do not think I would be driving my car much even though I have my license with me now.
