Uber passengers on Thailand have a new way to get around: as of Wednesday, the ride service has added motorcycles to its offerings in Bangkok.
The Thai capital marks the first place the company has offered motorcycles, in a feature it’s calling UberMOTO, The Verge reports. The idea is to capitalize on a transportation method that’s already popular in the region, much as it tried to do in India with auto rickshaws (an experiment that ultimately failed).
UberMOTO rides start at about 28 cents, with an additional 10 cents per kilometer and 2 cents per minute. Drivers will be required to provide helmets for passengers.
