Uber users can pay by cash in four more Indian cities now!After Hyderabad, passengers taking Uber cab in Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Jaipur and Kochi can now too pay in cash.

Uber will roll the cash based payment facility to increase its reach among Indians who are either not comfortable of well-versed with digital cash payments through mobile application.

"A large number of users in small towns such as Jaipur and Kochi want to come on Uber but are more comfortable paying by cash. We have rolled out the option of cash payment in these cities. We may potentially roll out to bigger metros," Bhavik Rathod, general manager for Uber in Bangalore, told Economic Times.

This move will also put Uber at par with other cab services like Ola, Meru Flexi, Mega Cabs and others who accept cash.
The ‘cash’ option will be in the app itself.

Uber drivers have been asked to load the cash wallets with change at all times, before accepting a ride, to avoid time wastage while looking for change.
