Uber puzzles industry with carpool launch

Uber Commute is similar to Grab's offering, GrabHitch, that was launched in 2015

Uber Commute, a "casual carpooling" service, is for drivers to pick up riders who are going in the same direction.


UBER on Wednesday launched Uber Commute in Singapore, baffling industry watchers who told The Business Times that this came three years after its rival Grab launched a similar product, and amid speculation that Uber will soon sell its South-east Asian business to Grab.
