Uber sends fleet to map out NYC's quickest routes
« on: September 27, 2018, 12:22:41 PM »
A new fleet of white Uber-branded vehicles is hitting New York City’s streets — but you won’t be able to hail one.

The ride-hail titan on Thursday is rolling out a fleet of city-mapping cars in an effort to speed up your journey around town.

The new cars — which are similar to Google’s Street View vehicles that have a roof-mounted 360-degree camera — will map streets and intersections in the Big Apple and nearby suburbs.

The images will be for internal use only and will be used to determine quicker pick-up and drop-off points, as well as to improve routes for its UberPOOL car-share service, the company said.
