Uber launches new ride-hailing service in Houston

By Andrew D. Smith – Houston (AP) Uber Technologies Inc. is launching a new ride hailing service in a Houston suburb after a two-year trial with Houston-area drivers, the company announced Tuesday.

The ride-sharing service, UberCab, will be available in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and Austin.

Uber will operate under the Uber logo.

It’s unclear whether UberCabs will be a full-fledged cab service, or just an option for riders to hail rides.

Uber has said it is in the early stages of developing its own ride hairing app.
