A group of ride-sharing companies are set to announce a tentative deal on Monday that will end the middle man for drivers, making it easier for them to get to work.
The announcement comes a week after Uber, which has long offered an affordable alternative to taxi and limo services, announced plans to merge with Lyft.
The news comes on the heels of a lawsuit filed by Lyft drivers who say the company is misusing its position of dominance in the industry.
Uber has a long history of misusing the relationship, with former employees saying it was a major factor in their company’s rapid decline.
According to a report by Axios, Uber is now in talks to acquire ride-share company Lyft for $1.3 billion.
The deal would give Uber access to Lyft’s drivers and would allow the company to operate as a competitor in the ride-hailing space.
While Uber’s current partnership with Lyft is not officially announced, Uber has been working to acquire Lyft for some time.
In May, Uber and Lyft announced that they had agreed to a $1 billion deal, a deal that would give Lyft a significant presence in the US.
The deal comes on top of Uber’s recent deal with Lyft to open up its drivers to the ride sharing platform.
The ride-booking company, which operates in 35 countries, has said that it wants to use the app to help boost demand for its UberPool service.
Lyft has already launched UberPool in the Bay Area.
