Khosrowshahi took the helm at Uber in August after co-founder Travis Kalanick was forced out over a series of scandals and missteps, as well as allegations of unethical competition and a toxic work environment.

Jump and Uber were previously partners and 250 red bikes - which could be picked up or dropped off anywhere using built-in Global Positioning System - have been available through the Uber app in San Francisco since the start of the year. "Furthermore, the fall 2016 breach occurred while Uber was in discussions with the FTC about its investigation of the May 2014 breach, which also related to the company's practices for securing consumer data stored on the third-party cloud service".

The deal to acquire Jump Bikes, a bike-sharing startup offering dockless electric bicycles, was announced 9 April. He didn't offer any more details about the Tempe crash, but he insisted that autonomous vehicles would be necessary to reduce auto usage and to make streets safer.

"Definitely the driver when you're alone as a girl I mean sometimes they try to hit on you and they say things that don't make you feel uncomfortable", said Bren Lopez.

"We have to solve the issue of vehicle ownership", Khosrowshahi said. Since then we have moved quickly to do just that by taking responsibility for what happened.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Hall said the new features won't change how frequently he uses Uber but he supports the change.

Uber announced it would be participating in Shared Streets, an effort by the National Association of City Transportation Officials that lets cities get a better grasp of how their streets and curb spaces are being used by taxis, ridesharing companies and transit. The two companies said they also will be working together to offer the integration to new cities around the globe.
