In many ways, it looks like public transit information you can now find on Google Maps and the Apple Maps app – once you've set the start and end destination, the Uber app shows which transit lines the next bus or train is coming to near how far you will have to go at the beginning or end of the trip. An estimate of the arrival of buses and trains will be provided by Moovit, a service that performs real-time tracking and route planning for public transport. To differentiate from what you can already do on Google Maps, Uber will also soon allow customers to buy digital RTD tickets directly into the app. This is something that would certainly make public transit easier, especially for people who are not familiar with the city they are trying to get through.
This is just the initial public offering of Uber; the company says it actively facilitates other transit agencies to partner with the app and see what services it offers. Uber already has partnerships with a number of other agencies, but this is the first time he integrates city transport options into the city. Given today's message, however, it appears that this service will appear in other cities too long ago.
