Uber are to launch an “Uber Boat” service in London operating on the River Thames which can be booked through their app.
The service will operate between Putney and Woolwich later this summer and will operate in a partnership with Thame Clippers.
Jamie Haywood from Uber said, “Many Londoners are looking for new ways to travel around the city, particularly when they start commuting back to work.
“Later this summer we will launch the Uber Boat by Thames Clippers in London as a means for people to arrange travel on the river and road, all through the Uber app.”
Sean Collins chief executive of Thames Clippers said, “The new partnership sees Thames Clippers and Uber, who both pride themselves on safety, reliability and comfort, come together.
“It will allow us to link the two travel modes of river and road, providing Londoners and visitors with even more options to commute, visit, explore and enjoy our city by river.”
