The District of Columbia is moving to offer rides in some areas of the city, including the Capitol Hill area.
Uber is moving its headquarters to Washington, D.O., and moving all its offices to the city for the first time, leaving the company to deal with a new transportation system that requires more coordination between city governments.
D.C.’s Transportation Department said Wednesday that it will begin rolling out rides on Tuesday and that drivers would be able to earn an extra fee by calling Uber in the Capital Region.
Drivers who use Uber will also be able pick up passengers in the city’s downtown area.
The service will operate in the D.N.C., Maryland and Virginia regions, where Uber has its headquarters, and will allow drivers to choose between a traditional taxi or a ride-hailing service.
Uber, which is headquartered in San Francisco, was already operating in the District of Colombia.
The company has struggled in the U.S. with ride-sharing services like UberEats and Lyft, and is under pressure to deal more effectively with new regulations from cities that want to regulate them.
UberEats is currently banned in D.D., but Uber has plans to open a new service there.
Lyft is not regulated in D.-C.
Uber has been expanding its business around the world, but it is still a newcomer in the United States.
In 2015, Uber was valued at $26 billion and its stock price has declined more than 50 percent.
The D.A.R.T. program, which was created by the D’s Taxi Commission, is expected to save taxpayers millions of dollars over the next five years, Durbin said.
It will also help ensure that D.
Cs. taxpayers get the best bang for their tax dollars.
Uber’s move to the District comes after the company said it was considering opening a service in the North Carolina state capital, Charlotte.
