The company plans to draw more partnership deals in an attempt to broaden its offerings on the app

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi’s vision to establish new services would go ‘beyond ride-sharing,’ in which users could purchase public transport tickets and opt for rental cars.

Mr Khosrowshahi said: “We are taking our vision of bringing multiple transit options into the app a step further.”

“Having a greater variety of transportation modes at your fingertips helps make it increasingly easy to live without a car.”

According to Uber as reported on Financial Times, it has joined hands with a peer-to-peer car sharing company Getaround and a London-based app Masabi. The two companies will contribute in providing rental cars and e-ticketing for public transport in order to extend efforts for Uber’s transport expansion.

“Since I started as CEO I’ve signaled very clearly that I am committed to being true partners to cities for the long term. This partnership will take many forms over time.”
