Everything Uber Said At Its Global Product Showcase

    Uber announced a slew of new platforms and features at its Go Get 2022 global product event on Monday. The new goods will be available throughout Uber’s ride-hailing and delivery services, with the goal of increasing ridership, opening new lines of business, and incentivizing drivers to switch electric, among other things.

    The new capabilities were presented in a video starring comedian and co-creator of “Broad City,” Ilana Glazer, who depicted a day in the life of utilizing the new Uber goods during the event.

    Uber’s Latest Ride-Hailing Services

    Given Uber’s reliance on its mobility segment for the majority of its revenue, it’s understandable that the firm is looking for new ways to attract and retain riders. Uber’s new ride-hail products range from rider incentives to better access to electric vehicles.

    Uber Transportation

    Uber Travel will allow users to pre-book rides to and from scheduled activities such as flights or meal reservations. Riders may link their Gmail accounts to their Uber accounts, giving Uber access to any upcoming flight, hotel, or restaurant reservations and recommending bookings to get them there.

    According to Uber, this service is now accessible in key cities across the United States and will be available in Canada in the following weeks. It’s similar to another new offering from the business, which lets consumers in some areas to book events and meal reservations using the app.

    Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, this function will be slightly different. Starting this summer, Uber will test allowing users to book trains, buses, and auto rentals.

    Uber Shuttle Service

    Uber Charter is a partnership with US Coachways, a statewide bus service, that allows riders to book party buses, passenger vans, and coach buses directly through the Uber app. It will be available across the United States this summer. According to an Uber spokeswoman, the service has been in high demand.

    The advantage to users, in addition to the upfront payment, is that finding a safe way to move around while getting sloshed in wine country during a bachelorette party will suddenly require considerably less investigation.

    Event Tickets

    Because Uber is desperate for cash, consumers in the United States can now purchase Uber coupons for their events. Are you planning a wedding or a corporate event and need to get guests around quickly? Instead than phoning your friends and coworkers separately for an Uber, you can simply give them a unique code that allows them to choose their own pickup and drop-off dates and places. Users of this feature will be able to specify a maximum amount they want to cover, ensuring that it is not an open bar tab all night.

    Because why not, Uber says this product also allows customers to give their visitors Uber Eats certificates.

    Uber Electric Comfort

    Chevy Bolts and Nissan Leafs are incredibly affordable, right? The boujee and environmentally conscious rider can now order a premium electric car ride. Uber Comfort Electric journeys are now available in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Dubai, with Tesla models S, 3, X, and Y, the Polestar 2, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, and the Audi e-Tron.

    According to an Uber spokesman, the price is somewhere between Uber Comfort and Uber Black. That price increase may go against Uber’s Green effort, which guarantees no additional fees for hiring an electric or hybrid vehicle.

    This new service comes after Uber partnered with Hertz to gain access to 50,000 Tesla vehicles.

    Map Of EV Charging Stations And Hubs

    For the drivers, here’s a little something. Uber’s declared objective in the United States and Canada is to become a 100% electric mobility platform by 2030, and this new product is one way to appear to be supporting that goal while still shifting operational costs onto drivers.

    The charging map allows drivers to access information and incentives about the nearby chargers, charging speeds at those sites, and how to get there from within the app. The EV Hub provides drivers with information on state and federal subsidies for transitioning to electric vehicles, as well as discounts on specific electric vehicles and a cost comparison tool.

    The EV Hub would almost certainly feature Uber’s own incentives to encourage drivers to switch to electric vehicles, such as paying $1 more per trip but only up to $4,000 per year.

    The Hub is presently accessible for drivers in the United States and Canada, with plans to expand globally this year, according to Uber. The charging map will debut in the United States this summer before expanding abroad.

    New Uber Eats Items

    Uber’s delivery sector was ultimately profitable by the end of 2021. While Uber Eats income isn’t currently driving the firm into profit, it is a rapidly increasing area, especially as Uber expands into new verticals such as alcohol and convenience store deliveries.

    With this in mind, the corporation is doubling down on strategies to increase profit in the delivery segment, from enlisting sports enthusiasts to testing self-driving vehicles.

    Pilots With Serve Robotics And Motional Automation For Autonomous Delivery

    Uber is testing self-driving delivery alongside Serve Robotics (an Uber spinoff) and Motional, an autonomous vehicle technology business. The modest pilot will begin in West Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles on Monday.

    Ordering By Voice

    To make a habit stay, you must reduce the friction that prevents action, according to James Clear, author of “Atomic Habits.” If the action is ordering Uber Eats, the friction is the time it takes to pick up your phone, open the Uber Eats app, type in what you want to eat, choose a restaurant, and schedule a delivery.

    Customers may now create a habit of sitting on the couch and ordering in dinner thanks to the integration of Google Assistant into the Uber Eats platform. Simply say “OK Google” and ask their phone to order a dinner from one of the app’s restaurants.

    According to Uber, this feature is now available in English across the globe, with more languages to follow this summer.

    Uber Eats AT Sports Venues

    This is one we can support. One of the main attractions of attending a professional sports game is the junk food and alcohol, but it’s a bittersweet experience when you consider the long lines. Customers may now place concessions orders and skip the wait by using the Uber Eats app while inside a participating stadium.

    Uber Eats at stadiums is currently available in Dodger Stadium and Angel Stadium in Los Angeles, Yankee Stadium in New York, Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., Minute Maid Park in Houston, PayPal Park in San Jose, and Roazhon Park in Rennes, France, with more to come, according to the firm.

    Uber One Now Has New Benefits

    Uber One, the company’s membership club, is expanding its benefits to include Marriott Bonvoy, Clear, and Obé Fitness. Those who sign up on Monday will receive a free month and a $30 discount on their next delivery.

    Uber One is also coming to Mexico, Germany, and the United Kingdom, with more nations to come, according to Uber.
