Introducing uberMOTOR

Push a button and get a motorbike: saving time and money by sharing a ride

We’re excited to announce the launch of uberMOTOR today, allowing anyone in Jakarta, to push a button and get a motorbike ride in minutes.

uberMOTOR gives more choice to riders, at a lower cost but with the same high quality Uber experience; and to motorcycle drivers, who can now access technology to help them cover the cost of their trips by sharing the journey with another Jakartan.

We’re also making it easy to pay with cash, or credit, which makes the Uber experience more accessible to a new community of potential riders, and drivers, who prefer cash – from pushing a button to get to work, to having cash on hand to top up petrol from day to day.

Whether you’re behind the wheel or on the back of a motorbike, we want to make Uber a service that is truly for everyone. UberMOTOR is a great way to help hundreds of thousands of people get access to cheap, reliable transportation, and get around Jakarta, with a little help from technology.

  • 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 Jakarta by law. So your uberMOTOR driver will have one on hand 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’ll pay by cash or credit and in either case we’ll send you an electronic receipt.
  • Supply will be limited during the launching period
