Some Uber users in Seattle now have the option to plan trips via bus, train or ferry in the ride-hailing giant’s app thanks to a new integration with the region’s transportation agencies.
The Seattle area is the 14th region overall to get the Uber Transit integration, and it covers all major transportation organizations including King County Metro, Sound Transit, Amtrak, Washington State Ferries, SeaTac Airport Shuttle and the Seattle Center Monorail.
Uber is rolling out the integration over time to make sure it is working well. So far, about 25 percent of users in the Seattle area have access to transit routes through the Uber app.
Users will see a “transit” tab next to other transportation options once they enter a destination. The app will display routes, real-time departure and arrival times, walking directions to stations and pricing.
