UberMOTO launches service in Hyderabad
31 January 2017 Current Affairs: Cab-hailing firm Uber has launched two-wheeler aggregation service UberMOTO in Hyderabad. The firm, which has signed an agreement with the Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd recently, formally launched the services .

Using the app, people can hire two-wheelers for short-distance commute at cheaper rates. The agreement was aimed at providing the last-mile connectivity from and to the upcoming Metro railway stations. Uber Founder and CEO Travis Kalanick came to Hyderabad last month to seal the deal.

Uber inducts two-wheeler owners into the network, the same way it ropes in cabs for the main service. It said the owners would be sensitised on safety aspects before being hired.

Telangana Industries and IT Minister KT Rama Rao said the new service would help solve the transportation and congestion problems to some extent in the twin cities.

Driver partners of Uber had organised a protest early this month against the reduced incentives. They were also protesting against the shared services and UberMOTO, which, they felt, would hit their earnings.
