UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Uber, the ride-hailing app, is offering runs to and from the Mohegan Sun casino and hotel.

The service is available for guests 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Uber was launched in Connecticut in April 2014 and provides service in Fairfield, New Haven and Hartford counties. The announcement that Uber will shuttle customers to and from Mohegan Sun will help expand its presence in New London.

The taxi industry, feeling threatened by the upstart ride-sharing app, has been battling in several cities and states, including Connecticut, over licensing, insurance and other regulations that apply to its cars and drivers but not to Uber.

In January, a partnership was announced between Mohegan Sun and Blade offering helicopter flights between New York City and the eastern Connecticut casino and hotel.
