Bengaluru has become the most forgetful city for the third time in a row as most users from the city forgot their personal belongings in Uber vehicles, the ride-hailing giant said on Wednesday.

According to the third edition of “Uber Lost & Found Index”, Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad followed the list, with phones and cameras being the most forgotten items in Uber cabs.

“The ‘most outrageous’ items Uber users forgot in the vehicles were aluminium storage shelves, gold chains, baby prams, milk sachets, live fish and yoga mats,” the company said in a statement.

The most common days of the week to report items as “lost” in Uber cars are Saturday and Sunday while people are most likely to forget an item between 1 p.m.-3 p.m., the company added.

Ride-hailing giant Uber has officially rolled out its “Uber Rewards” programme for all users in the US.

Earlier, users in only nine US cities were able to earn points and claim incentives through the programme.

Uber Rewards lets its users earn every time they use Uber or Uber Eats, unlocking benefits along the way. It was launched on the heels of a similar programme by rival Lyft.

“Uber’s loyalty programme incentivises you to be, well, loyal to Uber and not to its competitors. For example, every dollar you spend on UberPool, Express Pool and Uber Eats gets you one point.

“Once you hit a certain number of points, you can reach certain Rewards levels, like Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Diamond, which requires at least 7,500 points, gets you things like priority pickups at airports and free delivery on Uber Eats orders,” the TechCrunch reported late on Monday.
