A year of rapid expansion and the creation of up to 50,000 jobs across Europe. That’s the future for online taxi-sharing firm Uber according to the company’s chief executive.
Travis Kalanick made his prediction at a conference in Munich where he said Uber is working with governments on new rules to ensure public safety is protected, choice and competition thrive and economic growth and tax revenue rise.
His comments were seen by some as a bid to build bridges after worldwide criticism of the company.
Uber has been accused of flouting competition rules and not carrying out sufficient safety checks on drivers and their vehicles.
