US-based ride hailing platform Uber today said it is working with various government agencies to offer its 'Movement' tool in India to offer traffic-related insights for cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.

Helicopter taxi apps offer escape from traffic-choked megacities 9.5.2018 General News
Within minutes of using an app to book a ride, Agostino Fernandes was looking down on lush greenery from a helicopter taxi high above Bangalore -- one of several Uber-style chopper services taking off to help commuters tackle increasingly congested megacities. In under 30 minutes -- a quarter of the time it would have taken from downtown Bangalore by road -- Fernandes was strolling through Kempegowda International Airport to his gate. "It's much better than the usual car or taxi because it saves time," he told AFP. "And for a city like Bangalore, which they call India's green capital because of the parks and gardens, you get a very nice view." From New York to Jakarta, chopper-hailing services have been taking off to help commuters beat the traffic chaos. Private helicopter charters have been available for decades -- at a price -- but the latest services are far cheaper and more accessible to the public, allowing anyone with a smartphone and a credit card to order a ride with relative
