    Meanwhile Uber has launched a comic series drafted by the authors of Amar Chitra Katha Media and Tinkle Comics. The comic series was launched by Nitin Gadkari, Minister for Road Transport & Highways. The comic series stresses the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol, the ill-effects of riding without helmets and the importance of being a 'Good Samaritan' to victims of road accidents.

    For those who are not aware, Uber announced a pilot launch of Uber Boat service in Mumbai, in partnership with Maharashtra Maritime Board.

    The on-demand service will provide transportation from three of the city's popular coastal routes namely Gateway of India, Elephanta Islands and Mandwa Jetty, via speedboats. Starting February 1, riders can access two variants of Uber Boat based on seating capacity - 6-8 seater for Uber Boat and 10+ seater for Uber Boat XL.

    In line with this, Uber Boat will enable riders in Mumbai to request a speedboat at the tap of a button through the Uber app, thus making waterway commute in the city efficient and convenient.
