Most recently CEO at travel site Expedia, Khosrowshahi took over the reins at Uber last August from Travis Kalanick after the company endured several months of nonstop scandals, ignited by allegations of a toxic corporate culture brought to light in a memo early past year by former engineer Susan Fowler.
Flare will offer first aid training to Uber drivers, the MP-Shah Hospital will provide regular free check-ups, whilst drivers can receive free eye check-ups from Essilor.
Uber will host the businesses at its Greenlight Hub, a Nairobi-based resource centre that provides technical support to drivers using the app.
Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi announced yesterday, April 11 in Washington regarding expanding the services of the company. "You can use your Uber app if you need a auto and you want to drive yourself, if you need a vehicle for an hour, a day", the Uber chief said.
An Uber spokeswoman said the company is pleased with the decision.
"Having a greater variety of transportation modes at your fingertips helps make it increasingly easy to live without a car", said Uber's Head of Product, Mobility, Jahan Khanna.
He noted how Uber, for example, invests hundreds of millions to offer deeply discounted shared-ride services such as UberPool and Express Pool. Uber will also expand its Uber Movement tool that tracks and aggregate data on travel conditions to another 12 cities on five continents.
"In a one-month period, intruders used that plain-text access key to download 25.6 million names and email addresses, 22.1 million names and mobile phone numbers, and 607,000 names and driver's license numbers of U.S. Uber riders and drivers", the agency said in a press release.
Khosrowshahi adds that Uber will share more of its data on traffic patterns for being 'true partners to cities for the long term.' With debates around the company going on for a long time now and even the recent unfortunate accident, these plans are rather more transforming for Uber in being a global transport marketplace and not just another ride-hailing company. "Autonomous at adulthood will undoubtedly be more safer".
Under Uber's new leadership we want to be a better partner to city planners and regulators, so we hope this data will help give them valuable insights for the future. Getaround lets users rent private cars from their owners - often at costs cheaper than car-rental companies - and allows owners to make money on their vehicles when they aren't using them.
