Uber expands in Italy with IT Taxi deal

Uber has signed a partnership with IT Taxi, the largest taxi dispatch service in Italy.

The tie-up is aimed at boosting the Uber’s presence in the Italy.

The deal will allow IT Taxi’s 12,000 taxi drivers to accept trips through the Uber app.

Uber and other ride-hailing apps have been grappling with an ongoing shortage of drivers, which has led to higher fares and longer waiting times.

Uber also has partnerships with taxi groups in Hong Kong, Madrid, New York, and San Francisco.

For years, Uber has faced opposition from Italian taxi drivers, suffering protests from taxi drivers in 2017, who accused it of engaging in unfair competition.

Now, its platform is set to open up to thousands of taxi drivers across the country.
