Uber to Initiate Boating Service
Uber will launch a unique service called Uber Sloep for residents and visitors who prefer to travel through the city's waterways.
This one of a kind project is set to begin in Amsterdam. With the Uber application, Uber Sloep permits any person to arrange a private boat to take them for a trip in the picturesque canals of the city. "Sloep," stands for "dinghy," a small Dutch boat motorized by oars or an outboard motor.
The Uber Sloep can accommodate a maximum of 20 passengers. The base fare ranges from € 15 to €1.50 per minute aboard. Uber's estimate price is €105 per hour, with a charge of €90 for each extra hour.
Uber is a U.S.-based scheme-funded startup company, specializing in creation of phone application for passengers to contract drivers of luxury vehicles for hire.
