Uber’s API dropped into Hyatt, United and Expensify
This week’s reveal of the Uber API marks the company’s latest push to become the dominant means of ground transportation across the business travel ecosystem – and third-party travel companies are eager to help.
First, there was Concur’s automated expense reporting for Uber rides and then in-app ride requests with TripAdvisor and TripCase.
The company continues to link-up with other providers, demonstrating the monstrous latent demand for providing on-demand rides within travel apps.
Hyatt now allows guests to book an on-demand Uber ride within the My Reservations screen. As the user is checking on a particular reservation, all they need to do is tap the Uber button and select the type of ride desired.
