The city’s first pilot program to test ride-sharing app Uber’s new “Uber-style” business development and business development team is now over with a settlement agreement.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, who led the effort to set up the pilot program, said that his company “accepts the settlement and respects its terms,” according to a statement.
He also said the program was a success, adding, “The city is one of the best places in the world to be a business.”
A lawsuit filed by the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission in December alleged that Uber was improperly charging fares for trips that it had not authorized.
The commission argued that Uber, like other ride-share companies, was violating the Taxi Act, which states that the “public convenience” of providing services must be protected.
Uber also said that it was offering the program to more than 600 drivers.
A judge has yet to rule on the case, but it will be heard in the spring, and Uber and the commission have agreed to settle.
Uber has said it is committed to improving its customer experience and its policies.
