If there’s one thing about Singapore’s public transport system that rustles our jimmies, it’s that it’s not exactly pet-friendly. How often have we had to leave our pooch back home while we embark on our day out? *cue sad violins*
“No more!” says Uber. A saving grace for lots of pet owners in Singapore, the ride service has launched uberPETS on 20 October 2017, a pet-friendly vehicle option that’s also a first for Asia.
No more #FOMO for Fido. No more crabby drivers who give pets in their cars the stink eye. All uberPETS drivers have opted into the programme, meaning that they’re more than happy to let your doggo join the ride. And it’s not just for dogs either; accepted pets include cats, rabbits, turtles, hamsters, birds in cages, and even fish in bowls or bags.
Best part? From now ’til 31 December 2017, Uber is waiving the $2 booking fee (no promo code is required) for uberPETS. All uberPETS trips are priced the same as uberX.
Thank you, Uber.
