Uber to offer boat rides in London

July 9, 2020

The new fleet will consist of 20 boats that will transport people on River Thames

Uber has entered into a partnership with Thames Clippers in England. This new partnership will allow Uber to offer commuters the chance to travel by boat. About 20 boats have been made available and branded with Uber and Thames Clippers logos. According to market reports, this is part of Uber’s strategy to diversify their business after the COVID-19 pandemic caused a decline in the company’s profits. The new service will only be available in London for now and operate on The River Thames. However, if it is successful, Uber will expand this service to other locations as well.
