Uber and Lyft have engaged in acquisition talks with crowdsourced bus startup Skedaddle, according to a TechCrunch report.

None of the companies would confirm plans for a deal, but the move would make sense given both Uber and Lyft's recent efforts to branch out into other forms of transportation.

    Uber and lyft do not understand ROI with losses in the billions they should not enter any other transportation industry.. all they will create is chaos. Uber jets failed Uber china failed Uber lease failed Uber asia failed Uber south africa failing If it wasnt for softbank giving 8 billion to original investors they would be out of business... they also gave them 1 billion for operating cash Within weeks they were trying to raise 1.5 billion from the private sector
