UberMOTO Bangkok is here to provide very cool services for Uber riders in Thailand! The ride-hailing platform said on Wednesday that it’s piloting UberMOTO Bangkok, Thailand, which will let riders hail a motorcycle taxi. The company said the service has been specifically designed for cities in emerging markets. Uber said Bangkok is a fitting place to test its motorcycle service given its sometimes suffocating traffic. Some 1,500 new cars hit the streets of Bangkok every day, more than double what that number was just a few years ago. The congestion has slowed traffic dramatically and prolonged residents’ daily commutes, which now average 120 minutes. Uber said its motorcycle service will give commuters cheaper rides and produce less congestion over time. According to the company, UberMoto drivers will provide riders with a helmet, since the city of Bangkok requires that all motorcycle riders wear them. The drivers will also be insured and will have undergone an extensive screening process, including a police background check.
