And in eight cities in the U.S., Uber users will be able to rent a auto from Getaround, a rental startup, right in the app.
The moves come as Uber has scaled back its ambitions in another mode of transportation - self-driving cars. Getaround operates in 10 USA cities, including San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC, Boston, and Los Angeles.
"Having a greater variety of transportation modes at your fingertips helps make it increasingly easy to live without a auto", Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi wrote in a blog post Wednesday.
While Jumpbikes are not yet regulated, the electric-pedal company received exclusive permission from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority (SFMTA) to kickstart service in the city.

Uber has long billed itself as much more than a ride-hailing service.
Drivers can also create a profile, which can help riders know more about the driver, including what he does outside of Uber. Upon completion, users can then lock the bike to any public rack in the designated zone shown on the app's map.
Uber partner organisations include the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA), MP Shah Hospital, emergency services company Flare, auto dealer Toyotsu, Huawei, Techno, Essilor, Kingsway, and Telkom Kenya.

But now, mom could reserve an electric bike for her commute back home, dad could rent a minivan for his biweekly grocery trip, and the resident teen could order delivery because she hates dad's cooking-all while that weird cousin borrows the actual family auto to go on a camping trip.
Getaround views its auto rentals as complementing Uber and Lyft's on-demand rides and helping to move Americans away from private vehicle ownership. "If this goes on, you'll simply have gridlock".
Uber revealed a redesigned app for its drivers this week, including new features such as a real-time earnings tracker. You'll be able to get an Uber.
