In Colorado, an Uber driver was arrested for allegedly trying to kidnap a 15-year old. According to the story by KKTV: “When she tried to get out she wasn’t able to because Muse had locked the doors, according to investigators. Then Muse reportedly kissed her against her will. He eventually unlocked the doors and the teen was able to escape.”

On Wednesday, Uber made the announcement of their own rewards program. USA Today covered the story and explained: “Uber’s rider rewards will dish out points depending on which Uber service is used, with the points unlocking different levels and the levels opening up perks. Among the notable rewards: discounts on future rides, better customer support and priority pickup at airports.”

Looking for a late night snack during the Uber ride home? Look no further. Cargo, the mobile snack company, just partnered with Venmo. According to the story published by Bloomberg, this means getting snacks during the ride will be faster, easier and without a need for the driver to intervene.

The week ends with some pro-scooter news. In Spokane, Washington, the city has just tested out Lime bikes and scooters with a surprising result: Both the city officials and its residents are big fans. According to the article from Spokesman, “… Lime wants to return to the city as soon as possible, and city officials have made their support of the program clear.”
