Uber announced Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017, that it will offer a free website, called “Movement,” expected to be available to the public in mid-February. Although anyone can use the website, Uber says it believes its main audience will be city officials dealing with congestion in their streets and transit systems. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)

Robert Kellman, Head of Midwest Policy at Uber, joined Bob Sirott to talk about a $250 million incentive program to raise driver pay in hopes of drivers return to the platform so wait times will decrease and prices will go down.
