    The expansion strategy is an effort to promote shared mobility in India with uberPOOL allowing people heading in the same direction to take the same ride.

    Prabhjeet Singh, General Manager, North, Uber India, said, "At Uber, we are constantly working towards redefining the urban mobility landscape in Indian cities which involves initiatives towards reducing congestion and pollution. We believe that uberPOOL is the future of urban mobility that allows ridesharing using technology, and in the process helps decongest cities by getting more people into fewer cars, letting riders move around their city more affordable and enables first/last mile connectivity."

    Singh said that "We have received positive feedback from other cities and are confident that as Chandigarh, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad embark on their uberPOOL journey, the same will help contribute to the future that we have envisioned - smarter cities."

    Uberpool is already available Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Pune, Guwahati, Chennai and Kochi, and now it is live in Chandigarh (3rd October) and Jaipur (5th October) followed by Ahmedabad.
