Uber Technologies Inc. signed a deal with Italy’s largest taxi dispatcher that will add more than 12,000 drivers to the US company’s platform.

The partnership between the ride-hailing giant and IT Taxi will bring the Uber app to more than 80 new cities in Italy starting from June, Uber said in a statement on Tuesday.
