New York City will become the first major American city to reign in rapidly expanding ride-sharing services Uber and Lyft, as the city council voted to freeze new vehicle licenses on Wednesday.
Ride-sharing service Uber revealed Wednesday it is adding new options that include a car-sharing service and a way to purchase train tickets.
Uber has agreed to purchase 24,000 Volvo XC90 SUVs between 2019 and 2021 in an effort to expand its self-driving fleet.
According to Bloomberg News, the ride-hailing service will install its own sensors and software after taking delivery of the vehicles.
Uber is in dire need of some good karma in wake of a series of scandals.
The San Francisco-based ride-hailing service announced Tuesday that it will look to its lifeblood to hopefully turn things around.
Uber has launched the “180 Days of Change” campaign that includes allowing customers to tip drivers, something its top competitor Lyft has been doing all along.
Seeing as how you are reading this between Uber rides, you are already in the know. Ride-hailing services are gobbling up the industry.
Uber accounted for 43 percent of ground transportation business transactions last quarter on Certify, the second-largest provider of expense software in North America.
Uber’s new partnership with Concur, Expensify, Certify and Chrome River to streamline ride expensing is another step towards the total integration of Uber into the habits of business travelers.
In the summer of 2014 United introduced Uber-integration for its mobile app.
Now American Airlines has partnered with Uber as well, introduced with two promotions. The app-integration provides for:
- Integration with the American mobile app.
- Ride reminders.
