Realty portal Housing has signed a strategic alliance with cab hailing app Uber* to allow home buyers to book cabs for site visits.
The feature is available on Housing.com’s Android and iOS app in cities where both the companies are operational and will allow consumers to directly book a ride after identifying a property of their interest.
The feature is currently available only for new projects but Housing said it plans to subsequently roll out the service for resale property listings.
“In most cities the process of hunting for a house is quite difficult and time consuming, through this partnership with Housing.com we’re happy to make that process easier by providing a ride within the Housing.com app, at the push of a button.” said Saad Ahmed, Business Development Lead, Uber India.
Uber has previously signed similar alliances with Indian companies like Zomato, BookMyShow, redBus and Cleartrip among others.
