Uber is in talks with its transport division over a “significant” move to close the operation of its transportation business.
The news comes as Uber is preparing to close UberX, its mobile taxi service.
Uber is expected to make the announcement in coming weeks.
In recent months, Uber has been battling with UberEats, a restaurant and delivery service that it said had not done enough to compete with its main competitor, Uber.
The two have been locked in a legal battle over whether Uber should have been allowed to operate in New York, a city where UberEATS operates.
The city’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, has said he has asked Uber to stop operating in the city.
Uber said last month that it was working on a deal to bring UberEAT to New York City, and that it expects to finalize that deal in the coming weeks, according to people familiar with the matter.
The move could also have a ripple effect on UberEaters’ business, said the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
UberEater’s operations are still operating in New Jersey, where Uber has a franchise agreement with the state’s Department of Consumer Protection.
UberEATS is based in Jersey City, which has a population of about 20,000 people.
The company, which launched in January, has about 80 employees and has been operating in some areas for months.
Uber plans to use about $50 million in capital from the city to expand the service, the people said.
Uber has faced scrutiny for failing to deliver on promises to improve safety, speed and efficiency at its services.
The business model relies heavily on the services of Uber drivers, which means drivers can charge fares for things such as gas, food, entertainment and entertainment-related services.
Uber’s business model has faced challenges in other parts of the world, including the Middle East and Africa.
Uber faced legal battles in the United States over whether it should be allowed to use fingerprinting technology at some UberX stations, which UberEates is also using to track riders.
Uber also faces scrutiny in some other countries, including Russia and India.
In a recent article in The Economist, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said Uber is facing “a significant transition” and that the company was considering an exit strategy.
Uber in March said it planned to make a major change to the way it handles its ridership, which is expected in the next few months.
The announcement of Uber’s planned exit from New York comes on the heels of reports that Uber had agreed to pay $1 billion in fines to settle charges that it violated state consumer protection laws by failing to protect its drivers from sexual harassment.
Uber recently announced a new partnership with Chinese tech giant Xiaomi, which could lead to Uber’s first Chinese ride-hailing app in more than three years.
