The Uber company announced today the launch of the new project “ScUber”. Now through the application, you can order … submarine. True, this can only be done in Australia. ScUber was developed jointly with the State of Queensland. And the destination of the submarine is only one, but what – the Great Barrier Reef.
“ScUber” is designed for two people and a driver. The submarine can descend to a 30-meter depth, passengers do not need any special equipment and training for this, you just need to be in Australia and pay a little more than 2 thousand US dollars for the trip.
Taxi service Uber and the Australian tourism group Tourism Queensland will launch a scuba taxi. This is stated on the project website and in the blog Uber.
ScUber allows you to book a trip to the Great Barrier Reef through the Uber app in Queensland, Australia. Submarine trips will be available to a limited number of users from May 27 to June 18, 2019.
A trip to ScUber for two costs about $3,000. For this money, passengers will be taken to the helicopter, rolled on a submarine within an hour and taken back.
The trip can also be won on the ScUber website: you need to explain in 25 words why the future passenger needs it. The winner and his plus one will receive air tickets, free hotel rooms, and an underwater walk. Can participate in several countries: USA, Canada, UK, France, New Zealand, and Australia.
If ScUber is successful, perhaps the company will decide to make the service permanent so that more users from different locations can see the Great Barrier Reef, according to CNN.
