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.
