Uber has now launched in 4 more cities (Guwahati, Nashik, Thiruvananthapuram and Vadodara) , taking the total count to 22.
Over the last two months alone, Uber has doubled its footprint in India going from 11 cities in June to 22 cities in August. The company recently raised $100mn from Tata’s PE fund and has partnered with Airtel for in-cab free wifi.
We launched in India less than two years ago and our rapid expansion has made India the largest geographic market for Uber after the United States. We have a current base of over 150,000 driver entrepreneurs and continue to witness robust 40 percent month on month growth, which has quickly helped us gain significant market share in India of over 35percent.
On the other hand, Ola claims 80% market share and is present in 100+ cities.
