Uber wants to use planes to pick up and drop off passengers from city rooftops

uber-trip-tracker
Say what you will about Uber, there’s simply no denying that the company always has is eye laser-focused and fixated on the future. After spearheading the ridesharing revolution against overwhelming odds, Uber's next big bet rests on self-driving cars. In fact, Uber just a few short weeks ago began rolling out its first wave of self-driving Uber cars in Pittsburgh. Interestingly enough, Uber’s grand plan to revolutionize the way we travel doesn’t end with cars. On the contrary, the company envisions a future where users will take advantage of VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) aircraft in order to travel short distances and bypass local traffic congestion in the process. And even further down the line, Uber believes that self-driving VTOL aircraft may become a reality.
