Uber's fight of California data-sharing rule highlights its bumpy road

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Uber argued Thursday that it should not have to turn over ride data in a California regulatory standoff that shows how the transportation service is falling afoul of officials who could threaten its expansion. The issue, which is being heard in a California administrative court and whose outcome will not be known until next year, pits Uber against the California Public Utilities Commission. The CPUC's approval of new ride-sharing services last year carried the condition that the companies make detailed data about their rides available to the commission. #Business #United States #India #Japan #Technology #markets #California #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #author
