Uber woos European cities with the promise of 50,000 new jobs in 2015

Uber Technologies has promised 50,000 new jobs in Europe from its service in 2015 alone, in an overture to get more cities on the continent to approve its ride-hailing service.

Uber also said it was open to sharing data with city officials in Europe, in a deal similar with the one it struck with Boston, where the company is sharing dates and times of trips, areas of pick-up and drop-off points, distance traveled and length of rides. The company said when making the announcement about the deal in Boston that trip-level data will be "anonymized," compiled in a way that protects the privacy of riders and drivers, without providing further details.
