    Thanks, Aleksandra, for sharing a piece of great information about why start UBER business and what are costs involved in. I have also gone through the post as well. You have mentioned and structure things very well.

    I agree that today's taxi business roll in the world inspired by UBER. Even startup now enable to learn UBER 101, Success, Challenges easily. Not only that, UBER is now expanding its brand in many industries like Grocery, Food, Logistics and Many more. Hence startup and tech-entrepreneur need to learn from UBER. UBER used the power of digitization through mobile applications and the web.

    Today digitization enables the business owner to takes their business in the next way. But always one question trouble to every business person i.e what is a cost to develop an app. As you have taken a topic of UBER like apps. Right!! But when I go through your post then found that you still lacking in many points like.

    • How to reduce the cost of an app (Important because your audience mainly startup and showing this point is very crucial in the article)
    • Cost of app development country wise (Important because you don't know where your audience came from)
    • Hiring Freelancer, Outsource, In-house team (Important because it affects a lot in cost)
    • Much more.

    For an entrepreneur, it is important to know all information related to Uber-like apps. As none of the internet sources provide you all the information in one place. But you can read the ultimate guide how much does it cost to make an app, where you can get first basic dependency of cost for the app and then after you can get the cost of Uber-like apps. The cool things about this article are you don't just get a price of UBER but as a bonus, you can get a price of UBEReats like an app, TikTok App, and many more.

    I hope this will add value to Alex's article.

    The Uber story of success bears a faint resemblance to Cinderella story. The company entered the market with a clear-eye understanding that it would be good enough to reach 5% of top U.S. cities and hit $20 million in revenue. But everyone knows the story ending ⁠— they covered all top cities in the U.S., 30% of the world’s countries and generated $11 billion in revenue. Pretty interesting turn of events, isn’t it?

    The Uber’s controversial path to success, however, was premised on the various right (and sometimes on-the-edge right) marketing decisions. Thus, you need to understand that the main expenditure item of the app line an Uber is exactly the marketing, not as much as the development itself.

    In 2010 UberCab, as it was called in those days, launched in San Francisco with prices about 1.5 times as much as standard cab. However, it was so easy to order a car, that people were ready to pay more. Along with providing various customer benefits, Uber focuses on various target groups. It offers them various ways to ride in the selected area. They cover different needs and have different prices. Thus, Uber has economy UberX, premium Uber Black and other products Uber WAV that have their own targeted strategy.

    I think many people know the history of Uber, so it is strange to talk about their profits when they are all in debt, it is strange to talk about how good they are when they are constantly brought up with cases in court, given data leaks, scandals, failures, etc., it is difficult to say that this is wonderful company, but one thing is for sure they staged a revolution in the world of passenger transportation. Actually, I think due to the fact that Uber has both pros and cons, the question of build an app like uber is always relevant.
