April 6 (UPI) — Uber Technologies on Wednesday announced expansion plans to include buses, trains, planes and rental cars for its United Kingdom-based app users.

The move for the San Francisco-headquartered tech giant marks the first step in potentially rolling out the program in other countries if it proves successful among U.K. customers.

Uber is available in over 10,000 cities across the globe.

When the updated app is unveiled this year, users will be able to book these travel services straight through Uber, though Uber itself won’t be offering the services.

Instead, the company will integrate its own app with software from other platforms that sell tickets for bus rides, flights, train rides and car rentals.

This Is How To Rent A Car Now

One year after the coronavirus outbreak, renting a car sure is a different experience. At least it is for someone like Alena Iskanderova.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, car rental locations were often crowded and the vehicles were pricey. Sometimes, the vehicles were clean, sometimes not, she recalls.

What a difference a year makes.

Prices are dramatically lower now. In some markets, they’ve plunged by up to 40%. Today, the car rental locations are quiet, and the employees keep a safe distance. 

“Many rental companies have decreased the interactions between their employees and customers,” says Iskanderova, a paleontologist from Seattle.
