We are excited to share that we signed an MoU with Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) to explore an integration with the network to expand the range of mobility offerings on the Uber app. The agreement with ONDC, a private non-profit organization established by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade of Government of India, stands to strengthen Uber’s mission of bringing safe, affordable and reliable rides to all Indians.

At an event in Bengaluru, Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi spoke with Infosys Chairman, Nandan Nilekani on the subject of ‘Building Population Scale Technology.’ Dara said companies and governments around the world can learn from India’s ambitious Digital Public Infrastructure. He added that as a technology company, Uber views open source tech stacks with a lot of interest and recognizes the opportunities they bring for everyone.

Uber’s vision in India is to serve the mobility needs of all Indians. This is in line with ONDC’s objective of democratizing digital commerce. This MoU is the first step towards accelerating our ambition to make Uber a platform for every Indian’s everyday mobility needs. 

T Koshy, MD & CEO of ONDC, Said, “As the Open Network is continuously evolving, MTT (Mobility, Transport and Travel) is certainly a critical sector for us. Different players together on the Network foster innovation and newer business models. Today’s MoU is a major step forward, and one we hope will enable a diverse range of mobility solutions to benefit every Indian.”
