India’s first app that pays drivers for their rides has been rolled out for a few weeks.
The app, called ‘Bengaluru Uber’, allows users to pay drivers for the use of their vehicles, and it has been downloaded almost 2.5 million times in India, according to Uber.
The app uses the Uber mobile app to track the location of a user, and will pay the driver if the user gets a free ride.
Users can then request a free one, and the app will pay for the ride.
Uber did not provide an update on the app’s rollout, but in an email to Quartz, the company said it had been in testing for several months.
Uber is not the first app to offer its drivers a way to earn money, but this is the first to do so on an app that has a user base of over a million people.
It has been developed by the Bengaluru-based app developer, Vaidya.
Uber, which has had a rough time with regulators in India due to safety concerns, is now seeking a licence to operate in India from the Transport Ministry.
It is yet to confirm whether it will continue its expansion into the country after its initial launch in Delhi, but the company is planning to add more cities to the region.
