Uber is a transportation network company which provides ride-sharing app for fast, reliable rides in minutes has shown its desire with a new project to launch- “flying cars”.
The official statement from Uber reads, “The goal of these partnerships is to develop a new on-demand VTOL network to enable customers in the future to push a button and get a high-speed flight in and around cities”.
The announcement was made by the company in a summit which was held in the Dallas area.
Jeff Holden, Uber chief product officer told in a statement, “What started as a simple question ‘why can’t I push a button and get a ride?’ has turned, for Uber, into a passionate pursuit of the pinnacle of urban mobility — the reduction of congestion and pollution from transportation, giving people their time back, freeing up real estate dedicated to parking and providing access to mobility in all corners of a city”.
Uber is setting the goal to build a flying taxi by 2020, as its first demonstration will take place in the 2020 World Expo, Dubai.
