Uber Ahmedabad: The Road Ahead

One year ago, we launched Uber in Ahmedabad with the vision of creating the convenient, reliable and safe transportation option that Ahmedabad deserves.

Ahmedabad’s citizens have always been future-facing, inclusive and quick to embrace new ideas and disruptive technology. But the pace of adoption in our city has been remarkable.

Today, we’re a growing team on a mission to empower millions in Ahmedabad with reliable, convenient and affordable transportation, that’s for everyone. And this mission is soon becoming a reality. It is now more affordable to ride with Uber than to own a car.


The foundation stone has been cast. Miles of relentless execution lie ahead. Here is a look at the path that has led us up to today.


SCALING EFFICIENCIES

The team continues the hustle to slice data, map demand, grow supply, train partners and deploy technology solutions to enable a reliable ride, minutes away. Through the year your Uber in Ahmedabad has been less than 8 minutes away.

In addition to getting you a reliable ride within minutes,
we’re also focussing on improving the quality of your ride


YOUR DRIVERS. OUR PARTNERS.

It’s important to share the magnitude of our partner-driver’s commitment and ambition. Last August, some had never operated a smartphone. Twelve months in, many thousands of partner-drivers on the platform are beginning to carve out better, more secure futures for their families, to make the pivotal switch from a salaried driver to a financially independent entrepreneur.


Uber Ahmedabad connects local entrepreneurs with global travellers to create world-class convenience and local economic opportunities.

The Uber platform in Ahmedabad has bridged two sections of society at opposite ends of the spectrum. Through future-class technology, to create amazing experiences every single day. The team works tirelessly to train and empower a community of driver entrepreneurs to help people get around the city seamlessly.


Over 85% of rides were rated upwards
of a 4 star experience


A SMOOTHER RIDE IN 2015

As Uber expands its footprint, we remain committed to driving safety and convenience for riders, as well as economic opportunity and development for potential driver-partners in the city.


PAYMENT OPTIONS

To drive this commitment forward, in a global first for Uber, we re-engineered our technology and business model to include cash, as well as other new payment choices, built for India.

While the switch allowed millions access to Uber quality convenience, there’s vast headroom for improvement. The team here is working with our Global Engineering Ops (a.k.a the brains that created this) to improve the quality of your ride in Ahmedabad. Which brings us to our single largest effort, in 2015.


SAFETY

As brothers, husbands, sisters and sons who’ve booked rides for those who matter most in our lives and as citizens of Ahmedabad in a position to help create a safer travel ecosystem in our city, we are extremely committed to Uber’s global vision on safety.

We’ve rolled out two new in-app safety features  a world-class background check process and an innovative collaboration that, put together, go well beyond the prescribed standards. The safety of our riders and drivers continues to be our highest priority, in Ahmedabad and worldwide.


SUPPORT

We’ve just rolled out a comprehensive support platform to assist you with everything Uber. And as always, you know where to reach us.


Around the world, our technology facilitates over a million trips a day in over 300 cities across 57 countries. The bottom line is that every single one of us here knows in our bones that we have to continually raise the bar.

We will continue to do our best to fulfil our mission. Thanks for being a part of this movement, and we are excited about the places our platform is going, and the potential 2015 holds for Uber Ahmedabad.

Once again, thanks for the ride.

Uber On,
Team Uber Ahmedabad
