Uber has today announced that it is extending Local Cab in Manchester, enabling passengers to book trips with an additional operator via their app.
Anyone opening the Uber app in Manchester can select the Local Cab option, alongside regular Uber options UberX and UberXL. Local Cab trips will be booked directly with local operators, and all subsequent customer support will be provided by them.
Intime Taxis, based in Levenshulme, is the latest operator to be able to fulfill Local Cab trips in the city. 11 different operators across Greater Manchester are now offering passengers the option to book a ride via Local Cab, including Street Cars, Cresta Cars and Kingsway Cars.
Since the company’s successful pilot of Local Cab last year, the product has launched in over 40 locations across the UK.
