article imageUber staff cancel nearly 5,000 rides from rival company

New York - The claws come out. According to reports, Uber employees have scheduled and canceled about 5,560 rides from their rival company Lyft. That's according to a report that dates back to last October.
On Tuesday, Uber released a statement saying that Lyft has encouraged booking and canceling rides. But now, Lyft has accused Uber doing the same thing, which is ordering and canceling rides to make it look like the Uber's rival has less drivers available. The tactic also reduces the number of cars available as well.
According to Lyft, 177 Uber employees have booked and canceled rides within that time. However, an Uber employee says Lyft's accusations are "baseless and not true."
Uber also says that Lyft has canceled more than 12,900 Uber trips in the past, but Lyft claims that Uber is lying.
"Once again, Uber is deceiving the public, now with false allegations and an attempt to deflect from their illegal cancel campaign," Lyft said in a statement.
These two are the most popular ride-sharing companies, but with most companies, they are constantly running deals to attract customers and drivers from each other's services. However, they still also have to fight with local taxi services.
