Uber app to offer public transport tickets

Uber app to offer public transport tickets

We will investigate and verify any potentially disqualifying information from public records, such as a new and pending charge for a DUI, to ensure the driver is still eligible to use Uber. "We are about mobility - making mobility available to everyone, everywhere", Uber Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi said at a forum on Wednesday in Washington. "With cars available instantly for rent in the Uber app, fewer people will need to store them in garages for those sporadic grocery store runs, daytime adventures, or weekend getaways", she said.

Uber is getting set to take on car-sharing competitors and traditional rental cars with its plans to integrate GetAround into its app. GetAround is a peer-to-peer carsharing company, which means it lets auto owners rent out their vehicles to other people.

Uber, which was founded in 2009 as a ride-sharing service, had been pushing hard into the self-driving space since 2015.

Uber Technologies will connect US riders directly to emergency number 911 from this summer, the latest in a package of measures created to improve the global ride hailing company's popular image. "We're excited to partner with Masabi to incorporate transit as an option in the Uber app".

"In a one-month period, intruders used that plain-text access key to download 25.6 million names and email addresses, 22.1 million names and mobile phone numbers, and 607,000 names and driver's license numbers of U.S. Uber riders and drivers", the agency said in a press release.

"Having a greater variety of transportation modes at your fingertips helps make it increasingly easy to live without a vehicle".

Together with Getaround's model, auto or truck owners decide for just how long they wish to earn their vehicle designed for leasing.

One big challenge, he added, is the future of the world's 1.2 billion vehicles.

At the event, Khosrowshahi was requested in regards to the self-driving Uber vehicle crash at Tempe, Arizona, who broke and killed a pedestrian from might.

The FTC said Uber in November 2016 learned that intruders had again accessed consumer data the company stored on its third-party cloud provider's servers but did not disclose the incident for a year. The first cities that are to be served by this tool are Amsterdam, Bangalore, Brisbane, Cairo, Hyderabad, Melbourne, Mumbai, Nairobi, New Delhi, Perth, Pittsburgh, and Toronto.

Khosrowshahi, the former head of Expedia, came to Uber a year ago after several scandals forced his predecessor to step aside.

The ride-hailing company is investing heavily in shared-rides service UberPool and Express Pool, a recently launched version of Pool that asks customers to walk to a better pickup spot along their route in exchange for a steep discount.

The deal to acquire Jump Bikes, a bike-sharing startup offering dockless electric bicycles, was announced 9 April. The feature is now available only for riders, but Uber plans to launch it soon for drivers as well.

At the time, Uber told The Post the feature was necessary in India because of the country's less developed emergency infrastructure and said it had no plans to bring it to the United States.
