Uber launched the pilot of its first motorbike service – UberMOTO – in Bangkok late last month.
According to The Verge, Uber’s motorbike service was launched in Bangkok and could be rolled out in other cities that suffer from chronic traffic congestion. UberMOTO is offered through the Uber app, and passengers are given the option to pay in cash or credit card.
Motorbikes are already common in Bangkok both as a mode of transport and as taxis due to the city’s notorious traffic.
This is not the company’s first attempt to localize its car service; in April 2015, Uber launched its auto-rickshaw service UberAUTO in Delhi, although the service was halted at the end of the year.
