The largest transportation network company Uber has been a pioneer in the cab aggregator industry since March 2009. Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp are the brains behind this. The name Uber itself suggests “topmost” or something “super”.
Ubercab or simply Uber has provided various services to its customers like uberX where anyone can drive for Uber using their own car, subject to background check and car requirements and the other service UberPOOL, which is a carpooling service.
Uber drivers use their own cars. In 2015, Uber completed its 1 billionth ride and in October 2016, a maximum of 40 million riders used this service in a single month. Headquartered in San Fransisco, California and United States, it operates in 570 cities worldwide.
