Web Desk: Renowned online cab booking service Uber has unveiled a latest app for its drivers on Tuesday.

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

Khosrowshahi wouldn't say when the company might resume testing or what might have gone wrong; he said the company was cooperating with federal investigators and dealing "very seriously" with the incident.

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. Sam Zaid, CEO of Getaround said that they are a "much more mature company" than Jump, which means there's no possibility of an acquisition by Uber, but only collaboration.

"Uber values driver-partners and we are always looking to enhance their experience while saving on their costs, in order for them to make the most from their small businesses".

"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. The initial release for Uber's new app options will be available in San Francisco only. The improvement is part of Uber's initiative that began a year ago to cater more to its drivers' needs to prevent them from defecting to competitors. He didn't offer any more details about the Tempe crash, but he insisted that autonomous vehicles would be necessary to reduce auto usage and to make streets safer.

With millions of GPS-tracked trips comes some fascinating data about how the city moves at different times of the day, week and year.

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

"That's why we want to provide alternatives to personal auto ownership by bringing together multiple modes of transportation right in our app".

Uber took another step toward becoming the king of mobility-on-demand on Wednesday by integrating electric bicycle rental, public transit, and vehicle sharing into its mobile app.

Uber revealed that in 2016 it has paid a "researcher" $100,000 to destroy the information and fed the payment through its bug bounty program.

Masabi public transportation ticketing: Using the Uber app, public transport riders will be able to buy and use bus and rail tickets. Meghan Joyce, Uber's Regional General Manager for the United States and Canada, said it will help cities "better do curbside planning and ensure everyone who needs to use the curbside is doing so in a safe, responsible and easy way". "Uber is going to invest more specifically in modes that are not just ride-hailing".
