Uber looks to emerging markets like Thailand to set up new motorcycle service

After hitting regulatory obstacles in the U.S. and Europe, and admitting to huge financial losses in China, the cyber taxi service Uber appears to be looking for new avenues to profitability in its emerging markets.

Uber opened a motorcycle taxi service in the Indian city of Banglore on Thursday. Just ten days ago, the company launched a similar service in Bangkok, a city famous for its bad traffic. CCTV’s Tony Cheng reports from Thailand.
