Bruce Schaller, an urban transportation expert, said there are about 55,000 Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing drivers in New York City, a metropolis of 8 million people, eight times bigger than San Francisco.
Uber is expanding further into the competitive dockless bike-sharing space with the acquisition of JUMP.
"Both of plaintiff's legs required amputation due to the severity of the crushing injuries", the lawsuit says, naming Uber, Lopez and the other driver among the defendants.
The move also pushes Uber closer to its goal of reducing auto ownership, according to Khosrowshahi. "We share numerous same goals as the 600 cities we serve, and are committed to addressing the same challenges: Reducing individual vehicle ownership, expanding transportation access and helping governments plan future transportation investments". Earlier this week Uber announced a partnership with bike-share company JUMP, allowing users to rent bikes via the Uber app. Uber has been piloting the JUMP bikes in San Francisco and today announced it will expand the program to Washington, D.C.
Just days after announcing the purchase of bike-sharing startup JUMP that allows people to rent a bike directly through the Uber app, Uber today announced that is is partnering with San Francisco-based Getaround, to rent cars from the Uber app.
Another partnership is with on-demand auto rental service Getaround.

"In the same way you can rent a bike through Uber, you'll now be able to rent a auto through Uber as well", said Jahan Khanna, Uber's head of product for mobility. "If this goes on, you'll simply have gridlock". This week, the company acquired Jump Bikes, which puts people on shared, electric bicycles. You'll be able to get an Uber.
"Autonomous is part of the solution and I think long term is going to be an important part of the solution of getting rid of auto ownership", Khosrowshahi said.
Capping off a blitz of new features, Uber also announced a partnership with Masabi, a British firm which offers mobile ticketing services for public transport companies.
Uber launched a beta version of the app four months ago, and conducted 100,000 trips before rolling out the final product, according to Khosrowshahi's blog post. Uber wants to own a piece of every trip that happens in cities, from e-bikes to public transit - even if it's not an Uber-operated service. The service will also include integration of transit maps and schedule information in select cities.The company did not say which cities.
For those familiar with the Transit app, which combines all of the available nearby transit into one convenient dashboard, Uber's suite of announcements Wednesday shows how it essentially aims to become the same one-stop shop.
