The ride-sharing app Uber has partnered with five cities in central Florida in a public-private partnership designed to increase resident mobility.

After launching the pilot program last year in Altamonte Springs, the other four cities jumped on-board. The partnership subsidizes fares 20 percent for rides within the five-city boundary. Twenty-five percent is subsidized on rides to the area SunRail Station.

Last year, the partnership cost each city $63,000 to subsidize Uber rides. The program is said to complement public transit through accessible and convenient transportation.
