In a surprising yet innovative move, Uber has expanded its services beyond ridesharing, venturing into the realm of train travel.
I recently had the opportunity to experience this new feature firsthand on a trip from Blackfriars to Maze Hill. I wanted to go to Greenwich Royal Observatory.
You can find train tickets in Train & Coach.
The process was impressively seamless, integrating the ease and user-friendliness that Uber is known for.
You get a confirmation once you purchased. It’s about £5.30 I think.
This integration of train ticket purchasing into Uber’s platform is a significant step towards streamlining public transportation. You get a QR code here (not shown):
Here’s how the trains look like
There’s live tracking too!
My experience buying a ticket from Blackfriars to Maze Hill was a glimpse into a future of how Uber can be a travel platform of sorts. Very exciting.
