WASHINGTON, D.C. — Car-for-hire service Uber has hired its first Washington lobbying firm, according to public disclosure forms. The Franklin Square Group, which focuses on technology issues, said it will lobby for Uber on “innovation in the transportation marketplace.”
The firm has assigned five lobbyists, all former Capitol Hill staffers, to the account.
Last month Uber also became a member of the Internet Association, a lobbying group for Internet companies.
