Transport for America, an advocacy group, has released a new video showing how to get from your home to work on Uber.
The Uber app is designed to let drivers and passengers connect in real-time to one another without needing to ask permission.
It also lets passengers schedule trips, pay for fares, and share information with one another.
But drivers also have the option to call the company to request rides.
Transportation for America President Matt Hickey said the app allows users to get information on upcoming events, find out where they work, and contact people to make plans for the upcoming weekend.
Transport for America CEO Michael Purdy said Uber’s app is “revolutionary” and “revolutionizing” transportation for the US.
“The next big thing is this app, and we’re seeing that a lot of drivers are excited about this, they’re using it,” he said.
Transporting people is a big part of the American economy.
The average American travels just over 30,000 miles each year, according to the Federal Reserve.
That’s nearly half of all trips in the US every year.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there are about 8.4 million cars on the road in the United States.
Transit for America’s video shows how to connect to other people with the app, as well as request rides and book hotel rooms.
“With this app and our partnership with Uber, we can offer an even greater benefit to our passengers than just sharing a ride,” Hickey wrote in a statement.
“Uber has already helped more than 11 million people get around safely, so it’s great to see them continue to grow their customer base.”
Uber is owned by ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing, and its app allows customers to connect with drivers remotely via a smartphone app.
Hickey and other drivers are encouraged to use the app as well, as it’s a way to make connections with other drivers.
Transports for America is also using the app to help promote the idea that Uber is not just for drivers, but for anyone with a vehicle.
“We know this app is not going to be the magic solution, but it’s going to help people who have limited resources and are traveling by car, so that they can get to work, shop, and meet people,” Hicky said.
“I think that’s going and doing a lot for the country.”
