For a few years now, transport firm Uber has been adding more and more new and exciting items to its list of transport projects. One of the most popular new additions to the platform is Uber Jump. This has become not only one of the most informative platforms for Uber, but one of the most interesting for a lot of Uber users.
What is Uber Jump?
It’s an easy and effective way to rent electronic bikes, bikes, scooters, and various other forms of single-person transport. It is the go-to choice for a lot of people who need to get access to a vehicle quickly, and who wish to move quickly through traffic, hills, and just about everything else that you can imagine.
Uber Jump makes use of a particular kind of bike, one that comes with an integrated GPS and a lock system. If you wish to keep it secure and safe, you can. If you wish to find one in the nearby area, you can. Now, you can make sure that you pick up a high-end transport option that suits your needs.
Some Uber Jump areas have just electronic bikes, others have just about every kind of transport you can think of. For the most part, though, Uber Jump will be giving you access to pedal-assist electrical bikes.
How does Uber Jump work?
The process is actually quite simply. You just need to open up the Uber app, and then head to the Bike section. This should be in the little user section underneath your profile picture. Click Bike, and if one is nearby it will show you.
Then, you get a PIN given to you for that particular bike. You will be given a price, too. Make your payment, and then you can head off to get the bike. Note: price is dependent on location, so be ready to pay a bit more for the bike if you live in a big city.
You just then head over to the bike, get it, use it for as long as you need, and then take it back to the location that you are asked to. Most of thee bikes can be secured to a standard public rack. If you see one and you wish to drop it off there, you normally can. Your Uber app will give you all the information that you need about Uber Jump parking when you go to park up.
How much does Uber Jump cost?
It does depend almost entirely on where you are. Uber Jump is still quite new, so it is not everywhere just yet. It will be rolling out more and more in the near future, though, so keep that in mind. For now, though, you will likely find that the average price can be around 15 cents per minute it is used. It does depend on demand and various other factors, though, so keep that in mind.
The Uber Jump platform, though, is going nowhere. Expect it to only grow in size as time goes on.
