Uber has today announced UberHire XL service in New Delhi today, this service allows up to 6 riders to travel together and book both day long trips and long distance journeys across NCR. UberHIRE XL is a time-based service that will be available on-demand for riders that will offer an economical, convenient and reliable travel option. With this service, riders can hire a 6 seater for all their travel needs be it day or night, whether it is to explore the city’s scenic beauty or for business travel and multiple meetings.
Riders can avail this service at a minimum fare of INR 359 in cash that would cover the trip for 1 hour and up to 10 kilometers. This will become a one-stop solution for both large groups of travelers wanting to ride together to fewer riders looking for extra space while taking day-long trips with multiple stops across town. The pricing is flexible unlike fixed packages and riders only pay for the exact time and distance that they will use UberHIRE XL for.
