Uber is to welcome New York taxi reservations

Uber to welcome New York taxi reservations - After years of tension between the two parties, Uber is to welcome New York taxi reservations as part of its software to its application. Uber will integrate all New York taxis into its platform, a turning point in its relationship with the famous yellow cabs. Uber users will know, before booking, that a trip is offered to them with a taxi, and will know the price in advance, unlike a classic trip where the bill depends on the metre. The arrival of Uber in New York in 2011 transformed the transport industry, as in many other cities around the world and put pressure on yellow cabs, which had benefited from a quasi- monopoly.
