UBER Taxi operators invited to discuss regulations on 9 Dec


BANGKOK, 3 December 2014 -The Land Transport Department has requested another meeting with the executives of UBER TAXI, a mobile application-based taxi service, on 9 December to discuss the latter’s compliance with official rules.

It is the second time the department has sent the invitation to the UBER operator after UBER was declared last week as illegal taxi service.

According to Director-General of the Department Teerapong Rodprasert, UBER service violates the Motor Vehicle Act since drivers do not hold commercial driving license and their cars are not registered as commercial taxi.

The effort to legalize UBER service will allow the department to control the quality of UBER service in terms of drivers, taxi cab condition, and service charge which must be as equal as other taxis.
