Global taxi-hailing platform  Uber said it has partnered with Bangalore Metro Rail  Corporation Limited (BMRCL) across 12 metro stations to  provide last mile connectivity to everyday commuters.

Consumers can avail the service through exclusive Uber  booking counters at metro stations, Uber said in a statement.

It said Uber representatives will also be available at  these counters to ensure metro commuters get a reliable and  affordable ride to their next destination.

Uber booking counters at Metro stations will be  available by end of March 2017.

“This partnership is a great example of how the public  and private transport can work together and complement each  other’s strengths in order to help solve major issues that  citizens face, in this case, last mile connectivity,” Uber  (Bengaluru) General Manager Christian Freese said.

Uber booking kiosks will come up at Kempegowda Majestic Station, Baiyyapanahalli, Mysore Road, Indiranagar,  Vijayanagar, M G Road, Mantri Mall station, Orion Mall (Sandal  soap factory), Sir M Visweswaraiyya Central College,  Jalahalli, Dasarahalli and Hosahalli station.

The service will be helpful for those who might have  trouble accessing data on their phone, or might not have the  Uber app, it said.
