Uber Launches New App For Its Drivers

Uber Health: Get to your appointments on time, even without a car

Soon, customers will be able to buy public transit tickets in the Uber app in 12 cities like NY (commuter rail), Los Angeles and New Orleans through a deal with online ticketing platform Masabi. People share everything from a Prius to a Tesla and earn thousands in extra income each year, offsetting the high cost of auto ownership while also making a positive impact on the environment.

Brendan Brock lost both of his legs after being struck by a auto while helping an Uber driver push his vehicle off a highway, a new lawsuit states.

The ridesharing giant announced plans to acquire JUMP Bikes this week, according to our sister site Technical.ly Brooklyn.

But if it can create a useful interface for planning and booking so-called "multi-modal" routes, which combine multiple types of transportation - such as an Uber ride to the nearest commuter rail station - it could be a win-win.

Going forward, Uber will be less about simply booking a vehicle but traveling "from Point A to Point B in the best way" with a variety of transit options, he said.

It wasn't until last October that the court made a decision, awarding VirnetX with $439.7 million in damages. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board has ruled the patents invalid, which VirnetX is appealing.

Uber partner organisations include the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA), MP Shah Hospital, emergency services company Flare, vehicle dealer Toyotsu, Huawei, Techno, Essilor, Kingsway, and Telkom Kenya. There's no word yet on when the service will spread to other cities. The two companies worked closely together to design the app experience and to integrate the Uber app seamlessly with Getaround.

Uber is also expanding Uber Bike by JUMP to Washington, D.C., following its rollout in San Francisco earlier this year, and new efforts to promote auto sharing.

Beyond existing aggregated data Uber publishes for the District (and a newly expanded list of other cities), Uber is working with SharedStreets to provide D.C. data on the most popular locations for drop offs and pickups.

This willingness to share nonproprietary data to help cities better maintain and operate infrastructure is an about-face from the Uber of the past. "We are about mobility - making mobility available to everyone, everywhere", Uber Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi said at a forum on Wednesday in Washington. It's too expensive. But now, mom could reserve an electric bike for her commute back home, dad could rent a minivan for his biweekly grocery trip, and the resident teen could order delivery because she hates dad's cooking-all while that weird cousin borrows the actual family auto to go on a camping trip.
