The U.S. ride-sharing major announced that it was launching a taxi-hailing app for taxis operating in Nagoya. Uber said that it had partnered with a company that has been operating in Japan's Nagoya region for over six decades now - Fuji Taxi Group. The Fuji Taxi Group, which is located near the heart of Japan's automaking heartland, emerged as the San Francisco-based Uber's partner for its cab-hailing programme in the world's largest taxi markets. Uber said in its announcement that its deal with the Nagoya-based Fuji Taxi Group would allow users to hail cabs through its app in Japan’s third-most populous city. The U.S. company has not revealed the exact terms of the deal, but is believed to get an unspecified cut of all fares, which will be based on standard rates required by regulators.
