Re­ly­ing on nu­mer­ous man­u­fac­tur­ing and lo­gis­tics part­ners, Uber’s plan is to of­fer VTOL (ver­ti­cal take-off/ land­ing) air­craft that will be both light­weight and elec­tri­cally pow­ered for zero emis­sions. Their goal is mainly to ease traf­fic con­ges­tion but also re­duce travel times, and of­fer a cheaper means of trans­porta­tion and sup­port sus­tain­abil­ity.

The com­pany also stated that it hopes to even­tu­ally get the cost of a trip down to an am­bi­tious $1.32 per pas­sen­ger per mile, mak­ing it “eco­nom­i­cally ir­ra­tional” to even drive or own a car.
