The New York Times reports:
New Yorkers ordering a ride on the Uber app could choose a yellow taxi under a new partnership between the ride-hail company and two taxi technology companies. The taxi option will begin later this spring and will be available to all Uber riders in New York City, Uber said.
Uber riders will pay roughly the same price for a yellow taxi as they would in an UberX car, which is the basic individual ride, according to Uber. They will get a price upfront in the app before they request the trip, as they currently do with all Uber rides.
Yellow cabdrivers who respond to Uber app hails will also see a ride’s pricing upfront and under the deal will have the option to accept or reject it.
