Mears and Uber Sign Partnership

Orlando-based Mears Transportation Group has announced a partnership with ride-sharing company Uber, putting aside a bitter competition for market share. Under their agreement, the first of its kind in the U.S., travelers in Central Florida can use the Uber app to hail a Mears taxi or luxury car and will be given the same kind of information about the ride that is picking them up, including driver’s name, car type and license tag number.

Drivers will have to undergo a separate background check for each company in order to work for both. The official announcement was set to begin in November and was made in a public appearance at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
