Sign of the Times: Trulia Partnering with Uber
"Trulia has integrated Uber’s API to provide an additional resource to assist their customers on their journey," according to a post by Nathan Lam for Uber. "Now Trulia customers will be able to visit each home listing, simply by getting an Uber right from the Trulia mobile experience."
According to Lam, "Uber’s integration with Trulia is available in every city in the US," and users will be able to access Uber immediately from the Trulia website: "Whenever a customer on Trulia lands on the property detail page for each home listing within the mobile website, the option to request an Uber will appear right next to the button for 'Get Directions.'"
Trulia's use of the Uber API indicates a trend likely to become even more common in the future: commercial interests integrating service with transportation network companies like Uber.
