Vizag! Many destinations, One Uber.

February 6, 2017 / Visakhapatnam

UberHIRE is a new kind of time-based Uber that’s available on-demand, to let you explore and travel around cities knowing that your Uber will wait for you. It’s perfect for travellers exploring our city of destiny, senior citizens who need to make trips punctuated with multiple stop overs, or for business travellers who have multiple meetings – while ensuring it is an economical option for everyone.

You can now have your Uber waiting for you, wherever you go at just ₹500 for 2 hours (for the first 30 kms) and Rs.12 per kilometre thereafter.
