With bikes, transit, Uber unveils new vision of urban transport

Uber still believes autonomous vehicles have a future says CEO

And specifically by connecting customers to public transit, Uber is attempting to counter narratives that its services are the antithesis to city infrastructure, and that it takes customers - and, therefore, revenue - away from public transit agencies.

He said right now the company is cooperating fully with the National Transportation Safety Board's investigation of the event.

Khosrowshahi said Uber supports dedicated funding for Metro, seeing it as a proposal "that ultimately, long term, is going to benefit us as well".

A fatal crash last month involving an Uber self-driving vehicle was likely the first known incident of a self-driving auto hitting a pedestrian who later succumbed to injuries.

The judge concluded the hearing without ruling on Uber's request for preliminary approval of the accord, which includes nearly US$5 million for pay equity and as much as US$3 million for plaintiffs' attorneys.

The company is introducing a car-rental service and a new platform for customers to book and use transit tickets in its app.

To be sure, it's unlikely Uber will ever be able to replicate the scale of public transit, even with its many bus-like services like Express Pool. "That's why we want to provide alternatives to personal auto ownership by bringing together multiple modes of transportation right in our app", said Jahan Khanna, Head of Product, Mobility at Uber.

Park Circle Co Increased Its Stake in Hsbc Hldgs Plc
Investors following shares of HSBC Holdings Plc ( HSBC ) may have seen that the stock has slid -2.60% over the last 4 weeks. Stack Fincl Mgmt owns 84,549 shares for 1.19% of their portfolio. 70,088 were accumulated by Royal Bancshares Of Canada.

Finally, Uber is looking to cover as many transportation means as possible by offering public transit services directly through the Uber app.

Uber and Getaround already had a partnership in place that allowed Uber drivers to make money driving Getaround cars, but this new deal will give a wider demographic access to the vehicles. Jump bikes are integrated with the GPS and payment system-unlike docked bike share programs that put that tech in its docking stations.

Users can tap the "bike" option on the app's menu, which then allows them to see nearby available bikes and reserve one.

On Monday, Uber announced its purchase of Jump Bikes, a dockless e-bike service that operates in the District and San Francisco.

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

Users can "instantly" find privately owned cars that are available for rent in the Uber app, the firm said. "This will allow us to reach more people and get them to embrace auto sharing", Getaround's CEO Sam Zaid in an interview.

Pittsburgh officials could use the data to make decisions regarding infrastructure and future solutions to make the city more efficient. MasterCard, which has invested in Masabi since 2014, hailed the Uber-Masabi partnership as a "major milestone". "People weren't as aware of auto sharing". These cars are randomly parked around cities and can be rented on the spot.
