6 of the Most Unusual Ways You Can Take an Uber around the World

From helicopter service to moped chauffeurs, here are the Uber offerings you haven't heard about.
Comments

Uber hit the two billion ride mark in the middle of last year, and with a presence in more than 450 cities now, the ride-sharing app shows no signs of slowing down. Since its founding in 2009, the company has expanded its services far beyond a traditional black-car company. Here are some of the most unusual services it offers today.


Mopeds



Sometimes a moped can be a much faster way to get around than a car. In India and Vietnam, UberMOTO capitalizes on that. Just as with Uber's car service, riders receive their driver's name, license plate, and vehicle details before they're picked up.

Ski Concierge



UberSki, available in Chile and Colorado, transports ski and snowboard gear up and down the mountain.


UberBoat



Why hail a taxi when you can travel across water just as easily? In Istanbul, UberBOAT offers speedboats for trips on the Bosphorus strait that separates European Turkey from Asian Turkey.

Helicopters on Demand



The French Riviera seems like an appropriate place to provide helicopter rides at the touch of a button. Because who knows when one might be in Cannes and in need of a airborne ride to the Nice airport? UberCOPTER lets riders opt for a chopper.


Bike Transport



In Amsterdam and Brazil, UberBIKE offers drivers equipped with bike racks to transport riders and their bikes wherever they want to go.

Pet Transportation



While riders can ask all Uber drivers if they're allowed to bring a pet along for the ride, Mexico's UberPet is designed specifically for people to travel with their furry friends.

Green Cars



Paris, Porto, and Lisbon all have UberGREEN, a service that uses environmentally-friendly electric and hybrid vehicles to reduce emissions.


Seriously Luxurious Cars



Stylish enclaves like Rome, London, and Los Angeles have UberLUX, a service that gives riders access to luxury vehicles, like Mercedes-Benzes, operated by professional drivers.
