In China You Can Use Uber to Get a Hot Air Balloon

Uber China is introducing a new service called Uber+Travel that will let you use the car-hailing app to request rides on boats as well as hot air balloons. The company has tried out offering non-wheeled modes of transportation before (through partnerships), including ferry rides in Istanbul and helicopter charters in New York City. But hot air balloons are certainly the most unique conveyances so far—not to mention the Jules Verne-iest.

Until, that is, Uber starts taking people 20,000 leagues under the sea.
