Uber must feel a certain victory in being the first app to get approved for the NYC pilot program after its hurried exit last fall. Who says second chances don’t exist?
“There are several other companies in various stages of our approval process with others sure to join them,” says Yassky, “and we are excited about the prospect of seeing the universe of choices expand.”
Those others include Hailo, which already sent out emails giving select users access to the startup’s live beta program.
Uber attempted to roll out its e-hail services last fall, but quietly closed up shop in October.
