Mumbai, one of the most crowded cities in the world is being introduced to a new, innovative way to beat those annoying traffic jams. Uber Boat was introduced to the Indian financial capital on February 3rd. Since Mumbai is on the west coast of India it is surrounded by water which makes Uber Boat a great idea, in theory.
The issue is the price, US$80 for a 6-8 seater boat, while larger 10 seaters boats can cost up to US$132, and it’s impossible to book individual seats.
Croatia and Turkey already operate this new addition to Uber permanently while several other cities including Boston have operated them temporarily.
Only time will tell if Uber Boat will be a prominent addition to Mumbai’s Uber Service.
