After launching its PREMIER ride service option in India starting from Mumbai and Pune last month, Uber today launched Uber PREMIER in Bengaluru. This is an upgrade to their current uberX experience that promises every day, affordable fare and a better experience.
The PREMIER option will offer rides in select, high-comfort, economy-range sedans, best-in-class driver partners endorsed by riders and customers will be extended enhanced customer support for better post-ride experience.
Drivers will get the Premier services only if they have completed 1000+ lifetime trips and acknowledged by riders via the Driver Compliments feature and ratings. The company says that Premier will have drivers who have 40% shorter pickup time than the predicted arrival time.
In Bengaluru, PREMIER will join the current range of POOL, GO and XL in the economy-plus and premium segments. Starting today Uber will offer select riders in Bengaluru an early access to PREMIER.
Commenting on the launch, Uber, said:
At Uber, we strive to make every ride a great experience. With a focus on building products that will go further in replacing the need for personal mobility options, we’re launching PREMIER in Bangalore. We are constantly listening to our riders’ and work towards enhancing their Uber experiences. PREMIER has been devised to deliver on rider expectations for in-city rides that takes the core experience further.
