| No Comments

"E-hailing" services were made available to cab drivers in New York City Friday, news sources reported.

Uber Technologies, Inc. developed an app that allowed people to "e-hail" a cab and was selected by Taxi and Limousine Commissioner David Yassky, NBC News reported.

The city developed a plan that allowed the app to have a test run that lasts for one year, ABC News reported.

There is now controversy between yellow and livery cabs, ABC News reported.

A Supreme Court judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by livery cab drivers Tuesday that claimed Uber's app takes away livery cab services, NBC News reported.

The judge also lifted an order that had banned the services that the Uber app provides, NBC News reported.
