Uber - New Delhi

Rs. 70 + Rs. 2 per minute + Rs. 20 per KM

Uber - Bangalore

Rs. 80 + Rs 2 per minute + Rs. 18 per KM

Possible models: Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord.

So I am guessing only targeting the premium segment right now. Still cool.

Prices are quite amazing except for the Rs. 2 per minute tax which is horrible for India. Both Delhi NCR and Bangalore are congested cities which means that you are going to be paying while you are stuck in traffic jams. I do not think it is associated with waiting time alone.

Mobile Apps: Google Play | Apple App Store

Stupid tweet. Sounds like a paid endorsement rather than a good experience tweet.

But what if you take this cab late night. Since all other cabs charges almost Rs28 including night charges. So this will be better alternative

I think it is still cheaper than any other cab service if you look at the premium car offerings. I checked and most cab companies charge 25 rupees even for Toyota Innova. Uber is using Camry, Merc and BMWs in their fleet.
Even if you add cost of time travel... It comes to just Rs. 120 for an hour.
