Uber Launching Taxi App in San Francisco

Just a day after suspending its taxi-hailing app in New York City, Uber announced it is bringing the service to San Francisco.

Users in the City by the Bay will now be able to request a taxi via the Uber app, which is available for iOS and Android devices. The new feature will join Uber's existing sedan and SUV-hailing options in San Francisco.

"Uber is all about a convenient and efficient ride," Matt Hearns, community manager for Uber San Francisco, wrote in a blog post Wednesday. "Some folks might have a tough time describing San Francisco taxis in such terms. Uber SF would like to do something about that."
