The District is the testing ground for several of the company's projects. Following reports in 2014 that Uber employees used an administrative tool internally dubbed God-view to monitor active Uber cars and customers-and sometimes observed specific users' locations for amusement-Uber promised to use a newly created system to monitor and restrict employee access to such information.

The transit agency is struggling amid chronic safety and reliability issues, and it has faced falling ridership as a result, as well as increased competition from Uber, Lyft and other services.

The program is being expanded to Washington, D.C.

Earlier this week, Uber acquired dockless bike-sharing company Jump. In January, Uber launched a pilot to allow users to book rides on Jump's bikes in San Francisco in its app.

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. Moovel, for example, is a subsidiary of Daimler that is already integrating transit fare payment, bike sharing and auto sharing (Daimler also owns the car-sharing service car2go.) The Transit app allows travelers in 125 cities to plan trips using buses, subway, bikeshare (docked and dockless), carsharing and Uber. "And you'll be able to pay for the services in your Uber app", he added.
Uber is as well partnering with Washington and SharedStreets for compiling and analyzing data of curb usage in the city.
