Getaround to Power Carsharing in the Uber App

Uber users can now get bikes rental cars and public transit tickets

"Once we feel solid about the product market fit, we'll be expanding nationally", Uber mobility product head Jahan Khanna said.

The deal comes as Uber expands beyond its flagship on-demand rides and into other modes of local transportation.

While Uber has pulled its self-driving vehicle programs in all the markets where it operated, as well as not reapplied for a permit to operate in San Francisco, Khosrowshahi says not to take today's announcements as any sign that Uber is moving away from autonomous.

While Jump bikes are not yet regulated, the electric-pedal company received exclusive permission from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority (SFMTA) to kickstart service in the city.

Within the year, users should be able to buy and use tickets within Uber's app, Wired reported.

Uber has long billed itself as much more than a ride-hailing service.

The ride-hailing service announced Wednesday that it's expanding its partnerships with several companies that deal with other types of transportation besides vehicle ownership. On April 9, the company said it had purchased Jump Bikes, a provider of dockless electric bicycles.

This builds on a previous partnership announced in May 2017 where people without cars can rent a rideshare-ready Getaround vehicle to drive with Uber and earn money. Getaround lets users rent private cars from their owners - often at costs cheaper than auto rental companies - and allows owners to make money on their vehicles when they aren't using them. You'll be able to get an Uber.

The launch came after the "180 days of change" program introduced by Uber past year in June for making amendments as per the request of the drivers, like tipping and compensation for the time spent by the drivers while they wait for their passengers. "Now you can take a bike to rent your vehicle and go buy groceries".

"We're excited to begin our next chapter and to play a significant part in the transition of Uber to a multi-modal platform", he said in a statement.

For those familiar with the Transit app, which combines all of the available nearby transit into one convenient dashboard, Uber's suite of announcements Wednesday shows how it essentially aims to become the same one-stop shop.

Another glimpse into how Uber sees its future role: The company also announced a partnership Wednesday with transit ticketing service Masabi.
