Uber Pushes Into Public Transit With New App Partnership

It looks as though Uber is starting the week off on a positive note for a change. I don't want to jinx them, but this is two positive news stories in a row. Go Uber! wink

TransLoc, which builds technology products for public transit passengers and agencies, will integrate Uber into the TransLoc Rider app, a smartphone application that provides real-time bus tracking and route planning. The integration will allow passengers to plan trips that combine public transportation with Uber rides and walking, TransLoc officials said. The idea is to offer Uber as a way for passengers to get from home to a transit stop, and from transit stops to their destinations.
