The move could bring up to 3,000 new jobs to Uber’s potential Dallas office, which would include things like development of autonomous vehicles and flying cars.
Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson released the following statement in response to the council vote:“I am thrilled for Dallas and for Uber Technologies. Uber’s expansion will bring thousands of high-paying jobs and a $110 million investment to our city’s core, which has long driven our region’s explosive growth. “The City Council’s vote for this competitive economic incentive package illustrates Dallas’ continued commitment to innovation and strengthening its workforce. We are looking forward to hopefully welcoming Uber to Dallas very soon.”
