What is Uber?
Uber is an online taxi platform that is active in more than 85 countries and 900+ cities worldwide. At the heart, Uber is an app that connects driving partners with users who want a private driver. In large cities, the app is used by users who need transportation services. The user connects with a private driver, who takes him to the destination of his choice.
How Uber works?
Uber does not own a single car. Uber uses private drivers who operate in their own vehicles. Users and driver are both connected to the application and apart from the trip, everything else is done in the app. It is not necessary to have a credit card or even cash on you. The app is connected to various online payment systems, and you can just pay with the app itself.
We don’t have this service here in Mauritius, but Uber is pretty simple and handy. It is a simple way to reserve a car via the free app that can be downloaded on Appstore and Playstore. The available vehicles are displayed in the application and the closest one is selected. No more going down to the street, raising your hand, looking, in some cities, for a taxi parking lot.
Does Uber work in Mauritius?
