Uber CEO: We're cooperating with Feds on self-driving vehicle crash probe

Uber Rent will launch in San Francisco later this month. Getaround operates in 10 U.S. cities, including San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC, Boston, and Los Angeles. They could all do it without leaving the Uber app. Call it ... Within the year, riders will be able to buy and use tickets from within Uber's app, too.

"So we are having to discount very aggressively, much more than you'd think", Khosrowshahi said, to get people to share rides.

The embattled on-demand taxi service firm Uber has announced that it has acquired the electric bike-sharing service startup JUMP Bikes, marking the company's further investment into the on-demand mobility services sector. Soon, Uber customers in San Francisco will be able to instantly find and rent cars shared on Getaround using the Uber app. Cars will be available to rent across the city, and users will be able to choose from low-emission sedans to sporty SUVs.

Drivers can also create a profile, which can help riders know more about the driver, including what he does outside of Uber.

Another partnership is with on-demand vehicle rental service Getaround. 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. "If this goes on, you'll simply have gridlock". "It is somewhat compelling to be able to get all your transportation through one platform". He reiterated the company's commitment to autonomous vehicles, saying he believed "very important part of the solution of getting rid of auto ownership". (Some have questioned such models, arguing that autonomous vehicles take up just as much space as private, manually operated cars - and cheap, driverless rides would only induce more congestion). MasterCard already works with Masabi to bring mobile ticketing to commutes and transit trips. The service will also include integration of transit maps and schedule information in select cities.The company did not say which cities.

Khosrowshahi announced three partnerships on Wednesday.

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.
