Earlier this week, Uber acquired dockless bike-sharing company Jump. The Colorado Public Utilities Commission slapped Uber with a $8.9 million fine in November after it found that the company was employing 57 drivers in Colorado with past felony convictions or motor vehicle offenses that should have disqualified them from the job.
