After evaluating many countries, Uber's flying program called Uber Elevate (aerial taxi arm) has said that India, Japan, Australia, Brazil and France will be the first countries to get the flying cabs at the Uber Elevate Asia Pacific Expo. "We are announcing a shortlist of five countries where Uber Air can immediately transform transportation and take our technology to new heights", said Eric Allison, Head of Uber Aviation Programmes, as mentioned in IANS. It is presently too early to tell, but since these are major cities and have never-ending traffic jams, it could be that one these cities gets picked for the service, if any. There are many concepts by different companies that are generally for raising funds but Uber has already shown a demo of their services with a plan to initiate in the coming years. Earlier Uber had pointed out that it will first launch the service in Dallas and Los Angeles and was looking for a third global destination after talks with Dubai reportedly fell through. Uber has already partnered with Audi for flying cars. According to Uber, the flying taxi service could emerge as a potential mode of transportation. Uber has said that it is considering the enabling conditions of the cities in the worldwide markets that have been shortlisted, and based on that, we can guess that Mumbai has a better chance than any other city in this country.
Local commitment - We will work with federal, state, and local governments from day one, in addition to members of the community we hope to serve - real estate developers, zoning commissions, city councils, and neighborhoods.
Enabling conditions - Uber Air relies on multimodal, efficient operations that are seamlessly integrated with a robust Uber ground network.
