Housing has partnered with Uber to let its users take an Uber cab to visit home listings on the property portal from within its iOS and Android app. When users identify a property they’re interested in, they’ll be shown a “Get there with Uber” with multiple Go, X or other cars. The app will confirm the ride through Uber’s interface. Note that the feature is available only for new housing projects as of now, and Uber plans to integrate other property listings on Housing’s app, but does not mention a timeline for it. The feature is available to Housing and Uber’s common cities. Uber’s previous partnerships: - In November last year, doctor booking platform Practo entered into a partnership with Uber to let its users book a cab along with an appointment with the doctor. The partnership was available in India, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore with plans to expand to other countries. - In April 2015, Uber partnered with Zomato to allow users to see the estimated pickup time, fare and travel time to the restaurant they were looking up. - In February 2015, Uber rolled out Google Maps integration in India. As part of the integration, when users search for a destination they would also get an option to book a ride with Uber which showed up in the public transportation pane with an estimated pick up time, time to destination and fare.
