Uber is bringing its newest option for ride-hailing drivers to India. UbersHIRE allows customers to use Uber for all their travel needs during a particular day, according to an Uber report.

UberHIRE will be available on-demand between the hours of 4 am to 8 pm. The Uber driver will wait for you as you travel and explore, says the report.

“It’s perfect for travelers exploring a new city, senior citizens who need to make trips punctuated with multiple stop-overs, or for business travelers who have multiple meetings,” said Uber.

After a pilot run in Kochi, UberHIRE will go live in New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Vizag, and Nagpur.

At the end of the trip, the fare is calculated based on distance and duration. Currently, UberHIRE only accepts cash payments, according to the report.
