This is a partnership between Uber and Destination Perak, the state’s tourism agency. UberTRIP is a timebased ride-on-demand service that allows riders to explore popular tourist destinations in the convenience, comfort and safety of an Uber. Ipoh will be the first city in Malaysia to offer UberTRIP. Participating UberTRIP driver-partners will also undergo travel guide training with Destination Perak. This will allow them to provide value-added services to passengers who will also have the benefit of a local guide to show them around. While riders can choose wherever they want to go using UberTRIP, Destination Perak has also designed three suggested routes for their consideration.
