The ride-hailing company also said it's improving how it screens drivers; it'll conduct annual background checks and receive automatic notifications when a driver commits a criminal offense, like drunken driving.


Uber announced Wednesday that it would be partnering with Masabi, a software company that works with transit companies, to integrate transit planning and fare payment in the Uber app. Uber's Khanna cautioned that the process was still in its early stages.

On Monday, Uber announced its purchase of Jump Bikes, a dockless e-bike service that operates in the District and San Francisco. This will ensure that you can safely exit from either side of the vehicle in order to avoid moving traffic, and it also gives you as well your driver some personal space.

Masabi's software allows transit agencies to partner with a number of different third-party apps. These include Boston, Portland, New Jersey and Washington. Through the deal, Uber users will be able to pay for transit rides in its app or scan into rail and bus services using their smartphones. If there is no internet connectivity, if you ever feel you're in an emergency situation, you should call 100 immediately.


Uber, along with all other app-based cab services, has a support team that is always ready to respond to your queries that you might have about the trip and even help you retrieve lost items. GetAround installs electronic locks in the vehicles, so that renters can access the cars with their smartphones. This integration shares trips, locations and other information to 911.
