Uber to Team Up with Global Public Transport Association
Global transportation technology company Uber declared on December 4, 2017, that it is going to join a global public transport association to improve mobility in its operational cities.
Uber’s move to join the International Association of Public Transportation (UITP) is part of a drive by Uber to improve its relationships with local authorities after a series of regulatory and legal setbacks. UITP is a public transport providers around the world including Transport for London (TfL), which in September 2017 took back Uber’s operating license due to lack of corporate responsibility.
Uber reassured authorities regarding its changed ways of operating business after the disclosure of a data breach cover-up that has prompted investigations from regulators around the world. “Aligning the company with public transport authorities was a good way to make Uber a better partner for cities,” said Andrew Salzberg, transportation policy and research head of Uber.
Uber has announced a series of training sessions with UITP, which are focused on connecting people with public transport. Uber is also working on reducing congestion on roads by encouraging people to select shared modes of transport. “Uber’s decision to join the association is a sign that the company wanted a better relationship with regulators,” said secretary general of UITP.
“It’s a work in progress and having Uber join is a good sign. Of course they keep their business model but they need to be a bit more flexible and open to talking,” said Alain Flausch. However, Larry Hanley, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), which represents public transit employees in the U.S. said, “Uber should start being a better partner to the cities it operates in by paying a living wage to their drivers who call those cities home.”
Uber is now planning on entering in to the autonomous cars market, with the launch of its driverless taxi service. Autonomous vehicles are featured with enhanced vehicle performance and fuel efficiency, which is projected to increase consumer inclination towards them, according to autonomous cars market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
