Uber passengers in High Wycombe can now book trips with an additional local operator.
On Thursday 15th December 2022 Uber extended its Local Cab product in High Wycombe, enabling passengers to book trips with an additional local operator via the Uber app.
Anyone opening the Uber app in High Wycombe can select the Local Cab option, alongside regular Uber-operated options UberX and UberXL. Local Cab trips are passed to local operators to fulfil, and all subsequent customer support is provided by them.
Since the company’s successful pilot of Local Cab in 2021, the product has launched in over 65 locations across the UK.
Sajid Ali, Director at Tiger Taxis, said: ‘We’re pleased to be working alongside Uber to improve the ride-hailing experience for our customers.
Demand for taxi trips continues to grow in High Wycombe, so we’re confident that the Local Cab product will be a welcome addition, making travel easier for both drivers and passengers.
We’re now able to provide our drivers with new job opportunities, and new streams of income, which we hope will boost our own recruitment drive and help us to expand our fleet in months to come.
And for those booking taxis with us, it’s now easier than ever to secure a ride in minutes and get around High Wycombe quickly.‘
Andrew Brem, General Manager at Uber UK, said: ‘The success of Local Cab in towns and cities across the country has been great to see, and we’re thrilled that it’s now being made available to more people in High Wycombe.
Delivering the best transport options to passengers remains our top priority, as well as boosting local economies and creating new earning opportunities for drivers.
Riders can now book a trip with a local operator via Local Cab, or opt for the usual in-app alternatives such as UberX and Uber XL.‘
