Uber to partner with Las Vegas dealership on ‘greenlight hub’

For the first time, Uber is partnering with a car dealership that will serve as a “greenlight hub,” where drivers for the ride-sharing service can get vehicle inspections, training and on-the-job support.

Uber’s deal with ABC Hyundai of Las Vegas is expected to be announced during a news conference scheduled for Monday morning at the dealership.
