In its latest move to reinvent the taxi industry, Uber has launched a new service caused Uberpool reports Techcrunch.
Uberpool allows customers to split fares with other passengers, making the service cheaper. This threatens both taxis and and ride sharing services like Lyft.
It also shows what deep pockets can buy, with plenty of venture capital funding Uber can afford to experiment with these services. Those resources makes it hard to compete against Uber.
For Lyft and many of the other hire car startups, Uber is doing everything it can to drive their businesses into the deadpool.
