Uber will also introduce new technology that continuously monitors new offenses by drivers using data sources that cover most new criminal offenses.

Uber drivers called off strike.

On Wednesday, Uber chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi appeared in Washington with Mayor Muriel Bowser, D, to announce a suite of new initiatives aimed at positioning the ride-hailing app as a one-stop shop for urban mobility. Today, Uber has updated their service app and it has now added the much needed passenger safety features.

Khosrowshahi said the new plans would help Uber offer solutions for an increasingly urban world population and reduce the need for auto ownership. The program is being expanded to Washington, D.C.

U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson on Wednesday said San Francisco-based Uber does not exert enough control over drivers for its limo service, UberBLACK, to be considered their employer under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

This action of Uber include "180 days of change" program launched back in June to make the relevant changes as requested by drivers.

Even more strikingly, that private information was exposed in the exact same way as the earlier 2014 screwup that the FTC was digging into: data stored on Amazon Web Services S3 cloud servers was accessed using a key that an Uber engineer had somehow made public on GitHub.

"We are starting a strategy where we are going to double down on Uber becoming more than just a ridesharing company".

He said Uber considered autonomous vehicles "part of the solution" and in the long-term key to eliminating individual auto ownership.

"We were not flawless", Khosrowshahi said.

Working with the car-sharing company Getaround, it is expected to start later this month in San Francisco. Uber said that it is committed to providing further links to public transit.

Uber Technologies will connect USA riders directly to emergency number 911 from this summer, the latest in a package of measures created to improve the global ride hailing company's popular image.

"We're particularly excited about JUMP Bikes because they can provide a convenient and environmentally friendly ride that's often faster, especially in dense cities where space is limited and roads can be congested", said Khosrowshahi.

The organization declared a partnership with Masabi, an public transit mobile startup. "Cars are shared by people throughout the city and equipped with Getaround's technology for instant access".

In October 2016, hackers stole names, email addresses, and phone numbers of 57 million Uber riders around the world, along with data on more than 7 million drivers, which included over 600,000 drivers' license records.
