The Sanfrancisco based company Uber claims that there was a rise of fifty percent in its growth since its behalf launches last month, but it has no idea about its drivers and the fares.
The US based company says that when it is launched in some new city, it always takes some time to match its supply of cars to the rider demand.
Uber is a company that helps the riders to find out nearest cabs in the city by using the GPS. It is very difficult for a number of users to find out the available cars as very small number of drivers are available during peak hours since its launch in the year 2011, so Uber gives the facility for users to find out cars from their nearby location, but the general manager of the firm on Behalf tells that now it takes only a few minutes for a taxi to arrive.
This service has been launched across 70 countries with licensed drivers. The company also revealed that Belfast is its international business target. This is good for customers as the average time from button tapping to car arrival is just 4-5 minutes and these are decreasing further as a number of professional driver plans to tie up with Uber.
The company is expected to create a high impact on the normal taxi industry in Northern Ireland. Value cabs are operating 600 taxis in Behalf while the Monaca has 500 cabs in the city.
