Uber has been growing fast in India, just like they’ve been doing around the world. Last year, around the same time, they launched in Bangalore as their first Indian market. Since then, they’ve launched in Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai & Pune.
Just today they’ve launched in the four cities mentioned above, all at one go. Interesting mix indeed, and this also makes a statement that India is indeed one of the bigger markets Uber is targetting to get a sizeable marketshare in. Here is a look at the fares:
What is interesting for me is that the base fares are very low, and so are the per minute charges, which are at INR 1 instead of the INR 2 I pay in Mumbai per minute. I seriously hope that they decide to drop prices in the larger cities as well.
To celebrate the launch, Uber is offering a new promocode which gets you 3 rides worth INR 200 each complimentary in these cities. The promo code is valid for new users UBERLOVESINDIA and valid till September 30, 2014. Alternatively, you can sign up with my link and get INR 300 credit as well. Here is a list of other promotion codes as well from a few days back.
