Uber Elevate Flying Taxis

Nov 9, 2017

Category: Rides

While there’s been a lot of talk circling about whether Uber, with their as-of-late bad press, can stay afloat in an expanding market, the brand has been focusing on the future. And it looks like that future is bright, as they’ve just partnered with NASA to put us all in flying taxis by the year 2020.

And it’s not just NASA, they’re working with some of the top designers and developers in the aerospace field to construct all-electric VTOL aircraft that will integrate seamlessly into the brand’s present ride-sharing model – meaning you can order them right from your phone. In fact, at launch, they plan to price these flying taxis the same as an Uber X. Not only that, but the fleet will help cut down on traffic congestion, air pollution, and even time spent commuting. Let’s hope this plan of theirs works out, because we could all do with less traffic.
