Ride-sharing service Uber is testing the waters on Martha’s Vineyard. While there are no firm plans to expand Uber service to the Island, the company began advertising for drivers this week. Local cab companies said they fear Uber would quickly put them out of business.
In the months leading up to his retirement, the Vineyard schools superintendent will be appearing around the Island to deliver parting words and share a look at the state of the schools. Dr. James H. Weiss will be retiring June 30 after about 10 years as superintendent.
