Thames Clipper will be formally announcing a partnership with Uber later this summer 2020. The vessels are currently being repainted and the new name will be Uber Boat by Thames Clippers.
This is a partnership and there is no change in ownership for Thames Clippers
The partnership between Uber and Thames Clippers encourages more people to travel by boat around the city and supports the ongoing expansion of the river network across London
Uber users can purchase tickets in advance through the Uber app and then use QR technology to board the boats. The payment will be processed using the user’s Uber account details.
Passengers will continue to be able to purchase tickets via the existing Thames Clippers sales channels, including touching in and out with contactless or Oyster to pay as you go at the piers they serve across London.
