We at Uber are committed to driving a positive impact in communities. In line with the vision of smart and shared mobility, we partnered with Bangalore Political Action Committee (B.PAC), a citizen’s group working to improve governance and to enhance the quality of life of residents in India’s tech capital.

Speaking at the MoU signing, Lavin said, “With our engagement with B.PAC, we are confident of facilitating a dialogue among stakeholders to discuss the the city’s mobility challenges and find workable solutions. Together, we aim to move a step closer to transforming the mobility ecosystem with sustainable solutions.”

Issues of traffic congestion and high vehicular emissions take center stage in the daily life of a Bengaluru commuter. Uber has time and again voiced and acted towards the need for shared mobility and a shift to greener fuel sources. The pact with B.PAC only goes to further embolden our intent to work towards trying to change policy so we can help build smarter and more sustainable cities.
