Uber enters Sri Lanka

Taxi app company Uber launched Wednesday in Sri Lanka, a country dominated by three-wheeler auto rickshaws, as part of the US start-up's growing push into Asia. Uber said it hopes to snatch a large share of the taxi market through its mobile app service in a country where 20 percent of the 21 million-strong population owns smartphones.

Uber did not say how many cars were being used initially in the Sri Lankan capital Colombo, where it has initially launched the low-cost Uber X service.
