Uber expands 'Dial an Uber' to 29 Indian cities

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Cab aggregator platform Uber today said it has expanded its 'Dial an Uber' to all the 29 Indian cities where it has operations.

The feature, which was rolled out by the US-based firm in Nagpur, Kochi, Guwahati, and Jodhpur, allows people to book cabs without Uber app downloaded on their phones.



Rides can be requested from mobile phone browsers, even in areas with low or poor network connectivity, making this feature a must have for users in India, Uber said in a statement.

Users need to navigate to dial.Uber.Com on their mobile phone browser and enter their phone number to login or sign-up. They can then view pricing information, get a fare estimate and request for the ride.

After requesting, they get connected with driver over call to coordinate pickup and once the trip is completed, they can pay driver in for the ride.

"We began with introducing 'Dial an Uber' - an 'first Innovation' in four cities, as a pilot to overcome the challenge of serving under all kinds of networks, especially low or poor connectivity. Buoyed by the overwhelming responses, we are pleased to announce a national roll-out," Uber Head of Engineering Apurva Dalal said.
