‘UberBIKE’ Debuts In Bike-Friendly Amsterdam For Weary Cyclists, Festival Goers
By Yoon Sann Wong, 03 Jun 2016
Uber has set its sights on a new demographic in Amsterdam–cyclists. The brand recently debuted its service ‘UberBIKE’ in the capital of Netherlands where more than half the population rides bicycles on a daily basis.
This option enables exhausted cyclists–particularly those feeling spent after attending summer festivals–to get home without having to worry about transporting their bicycle back.
All one needs to do is open the Uber app to request for ‘UberBIKE’. A car with a bike rack will arrive at the pick-up location to transport both the cyclist and his or her two wheels to the final destination.
Each bike rack can only take up to one bicycle. The total fare comprises ‘uberX’ fare and four Euros for the bicycle.
Although ‘UberBIKE’ is currently available exclusively in Amsterdam, there’s a possibility that this service could become available in other bicycle-friendly cities. Would you like to see ‘UberBIKE’ available in your geographic location?
