Ashwini Chhabra, deputy commissioner of policy and planning at the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission, will be joining Uber as the startups first head of policy development and community engagement. The Commission has had an at-times adversarial relationship with Uber, which launched its yellow cab-hailing app in New York City without approval and had to pull it back. Since then, the commission has affirmed its belief that hailing apps are good for New Yorkers, but forced Uber to go through a bureaucratic process that gave its competitors time to catch up. Having lost its first-mover advantage, Uber is now up against similar apps including Hailo and Taxi Magic.
