New transport alliances emerge

Uber partners with Green Cab; Lyft, Car2Go join TriMet Tickets.

From OregonLive: 

Green Cab was a member of the Transportation Fairness Alliance, a coalition of several Portland taxi companies that lobbied city officials to more strictly regulate so-called "transportation network companies" like Uber and Lyft.

Under the new partnership, Green Cab will provide wheelchair-accessible service through Uber, which has struggled to maintain reliable service for customers with disabilities, as is required under the new city rules.

On Uber's platform, riders who choose a taxi ride would pay a base fare of $3.50, plus 50 cents a minute, $2.60 a mile and a 50-cent city surcharge, the same as a ride booked outside of the Uber app.

A partnership between carsharing company Car2Go and TriMet Tickets got off to a rocky start Wednesday, with many customers reporting problems, the O reports:
