Uber for Business is rolling out two commuter-specific solutions over the next few weeks to support businesses in getting their employees back to the office when they’re ready. One is Employee Group Rides, which will leverage Uber’s existing technology to match employees from the same company when they request a ride to work. Individual employees will have the ability to request, manage, and pay for their own portion of their trip and will ride exclusively with colleagues during days and times specified by their employers. Employers can also opt to subsidize or fully cover the cost of rides for employees. The other is Business Charter, which will allow companies to reserve vehicles – including sedans, SUV’s, vans and buses -- provided by third-party fleet partners. Companies will be able to connect with third-party fleet partners that offer enhanced safety and cleanliness standards to best suit customers’ needs. Both solutions will launch as pilots in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region, including India, before rolling out more broadly later this year. The launches address an increased interest from employers in creating commute programs for their employees around the world who are looking for alternatives to traditional transportation.
