On leaving the airport, besides taxis and rental cars, Uber is one of the main solutions to reach its final destination. However, it can happen to us to run out of battery after a flight of several hours. However, the transport service has a fully digitized platform, and it is not possible to order a race otherwise than with the mobile application.
At Pearson Airport in Toronto, Canada, this potential mishap will be a thing of the past. The mobility giant is experimenting with a new installation: several interactive terminals to order a race directly at the airport, and without the help of his phone.
In Toronto, you do not need a smartphone to order an Uber
For the time being it is only an experiment. However, this is illustrative of a dream still limited: the digital giants have yet to win with infrastructure and staff. The complete digitization of the operation of Uber – whether with its mobility service or its meal delivery service – today requires to have a phone on oneself, with a battery life, and to have a connection Internet.
With such conditions, it is not sure that the loss of customers can justify the lack of investment in furniture – in airports for example – and Uber seems to have finally understood. Now, taxis and rental car agencies will have a new competition. In Toronto, Uber has installed several kiosks to order a race by indicating via terminals and screens iPad Air our desired destination. Each terminal has a card reader, and the stopping of couriers is nearby.
