Quick Shift: Uber unveils new driver app

Uber Hong Kong boss Kenneth She Chun-chi says it’s business as usual despite regional upheavalMore

"We're excited to partner with Masabi to incorporate transit as an option in the Uber app".

Uber previously said it considers bicycles and public transportation as a way to cut down on environmental and traffic congestion.

The partnership with Jump will mean riders can find and unlock an e-bike through the Uber app.

"2018 for us is 'standing for safety.' We have a 9-1-1 button [on the Uber app] so that you can get connected the instant that you want to", Khosrowshahi said.

As a result of that 2016 infiltration - which the upstart publicly acknowledged one year later in November 2017 - no less than 25 million names and email addresses, 22 million mobile phone numbers, and 600,000 drivers licenses, were accessed by miscreants.

Ride-sharing app Uber has introduced new features to its driver-side app. "But right now self-driving cars are learning". Because of that secondary breach and Uber's misconduct around it, the FTC has revised its original settlement for a 2014 incident to include a few more provisions, including civil penalties should the company fail to notify the FTC in the event of future breaches.

BJP Fast: Congress demands Parliament be reconvened to debate and legislate
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress , Shah said the logjam in Parliament for 22 days led to a loss of Rs 250 crore. BJP has blamed the Congress party and the opposition for the disruption that is caused in the Parliament.

The CEO said Uber was awaiting the results on an investigation into the 18 March accident that killed a pedestrian, but maintained that "autonomous (driving) will be safer long term".

Uber has not named the company providing the technology that it will use to flag offenses in real time.

Mobile ticketing developer Masabi announced on April 11 that it has entered into a strategic partnership with on-demand taxi company Uber which would integrate public transport tickets into the Uber app. Uber said it also intends to double the number of bikes in the city to 400 - the maximum allowed under the District's dockless bike-share pilot. GetAround installs electronic locks in the vehicles, so that renters can access the cars with their smartphones.

Uber plans to add more of the bikes soon in the Washington area, for a total of around 400.

Uber announced it would be participating in Shared Streets, an effort by the National Association of City Transportation Officials that lets cities get a better grasp of how their streets and curb spaces are being used by taxis, ridesharing companies and transit. This is aimed at convincing authorities to create more space in cities for ride-hailing companies like Uber. Masabi, already provides mobile payment options for public transit systems in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and other cities around the world.
