Partnering with transit systems

Efficiently moving people around cities has perplexed urban planners for centuries. What if ridesharing could help?

Rideshare services offer more than convenience for riders. They can offer powerful new options for city planners, who are tackling pollution, congestion, and parking shortages. The key to making cities move better? Maybe a shared network, combining rideshare services like Uber with public transit.

Our application programming interface (API) helps make travel better for everyone

When multiple options are connected, riders can use multiple modes of transportation—including public transit—to get where they need to go. By partnering with third-party apps, we hope to help bridge the gaps in transit systems by ensuring certainty and reliability in riders’ journeys.

Working with public transit to create solutions

Using the Uber app supports agencies and local governments in increasing access to public transit options.

Great partnerships for greater change


Our partnership with Masabi allows riders to seamlessly integrate public transit with ridesharing by booking and using transit tickets through the Uber API.


By integrating the Uber API into the TransLoc app, riders will receive a personalized journey with the optimal combination of walking, transit, and Uber trips.


Moovit users can plan their journeys using buses, trains, bikesharing, and Uber. Real-time estimates for Uber appear on the Moovit homescreen, giving users immediate access to the information they need to help get to their destination efficiently and affordably.
