Masabi links with Uber for mobile transit ticketing feature

Once an agreement is reached with a transit agency, Uber users will have the option to book and display Masabi customers' transit tickets in the app, allowing for seamless transfers from ride-sharing to public transit services for convenient multimodal journeys. Making it easier for people to take multimodal journeys using shared private and public transit options together will help provide a real alternative to private auto ownership. The District is the testing ground for several of the company's projects.

Khosrowshahi told Guthrie that he believes "early on, these technology companies were fairly idealistic, for the right reasons", but acknowledged that things have changed and added later that he would "welcome regulation". The money raised from this tax would help fund Metro.

The service will be labelled Uber Rent. "By sharing our aggregated and anonymized trip data, Uber can help inform decisions about how to adapt existing infrastructure and invest in future solutions to make our cities more efficient", said Rob Khazzam, General Manager, Uber Canada. They were virtually unheard of in USA cities a year ago, but now they are rapidly expanding in cities such as Dallas, Seattle, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The introduction of dockless bikes - and, more recently, dockless scooters - raises questions about how numerous devices should be allowed in each city, where they should be allowed to park, who should clean up illegally parked bikes and whether cities should tax the services. "We're excited to move forward with cities".

"While 180 Days was about correcting missteps of the past, we also needed to think longer term, and the obvious place to start was the Driver app", said Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi in a statement.

Uber drivers are not their employees but are independent contractors.

Addressing new ambassadors in Moscow , President Vladimir Putin said he hoped common sense would prevail and that the situation would stabilise.

The move is a part of a greater effort to offer vehicle ownership alternatives and expand Uber's transportation options. Jump is one of five dockless bike-share operators in the city, and the District often is among the first places mobility start-ups launch in the United States. Yesterday's announcement includes addressing Washington residents who can now reserve and pay for Jump bikes via Uber's app.

The agreement provides Uber with access to 12,000 dockless, pedal-assist, GPS-enables bikes now present in 40 cities within six countries.

Masabi the global leader in mobile ticketing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based fare collection for public transit, today announced a new strategic partnership with Uber to add public transit mobile ticketing into the Uber app. Uber is already integrating the bikesharing service in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., and it plans to expand it much further. Getaround lets users rent private cars from their owners - often at costs cheaper than car-rental companies - and allows owners to make money on their vehicles when they aren't using them.

Masabi's Justride SDK will power Uber's ticketing option. The settlement also required Uber to implement a comprehensive privacy program that protected the personal information the company collected. In a press release, Checkr also named Lyft, Uber's biggest U.S. competitor, as a customer.

The company also said it was expanding its Uber Movement traffic data site to include 12 new cities globally.
