The move is part of Uber’s aim of partnering with established cab companies to capitalize on a rebound in demand following the pandemic’s impact.
In order to grow its footprint in the eurozone’s third-largest economy, Uber announced on Tuesday that it has achieved a deal to integrate its ride-hailing app with Italy’s leading taxi dispatcher.
Uber’s goal is to cooperate with existing cab firms to capitalize on a comeback in demand following the pandemic’s impact.
Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi remarked, “This is a genuinely historic acquisition in one of our most strategically significant areas globally.”
“We strongly think that taxis and Uber are better together, and we’re dedicated to building a long-term collaboration based on trust and cooperation,” he continued.
Following legal challenges by taxi groups, Italy, like other European nations, banned the use of the Uber service, which depended on drivers without professional licenses.
Uber presently operates in eight Italian cities, including Rome and Milan, where it provides professional drivers in luxury automobiles through its Uber Black service.
