Pune: An aggregated app-based cab service, Uber, has started its ‘Premier’ for Puneites. Officials of Uber claimed that this is a superior ride option at every day and affordable fares. The service was launched in September on a pilot basis in Mumbai and Pune.
The service has started with expansion in eight cities in a span of three months. Riders will be offered PREMIER as an in-app product option that serves as an upgrade to their current uberX experience.
“PREMIER has enhanced the core experience of ride sharing, one that’s as good as a rider’s personal car. We will continue to listen to our riders and driver partners and work towards making Uber a preferred choice of commute,” said Shailesh Sawlani, General Manager - West, Uber India.
Whether its mid-day meetings or shopping sprees, outings with friends and family, hosting business partners or taking rides to the airport, the Premier experience has been crafted to better serve rider needs on-trip and continue to iterate via enhanced post-trip feedback and support. Riders have indicated the need and helped shape the product by sharing feedback through features such as Driver Compliments and Driver Ratings.
According to Uber, on average, these best-in-class driver-partners have completed 1,000 plus lifetime trips and acknowledged by riders via the Driver Compliments feature and Driver Ratings, over 40 per cent of these trips have a shorter pickup time than the predicted arrival time and riders themselves have consistently rated these driver-partners with 4 stars and above making them the top-rated driver-partners on Uber.
