Uber given one month ultimatum to brand vehicles taxi

The Transport Ministry has given operators of Uber a one-month ultimatum to brand the vehicles into a taxi or face their wrath.

This directive comes after Commercial Taxi Drivers Association petitioned the Transport Ministry over what they describe as a breach of LI 2180 by Uber operators.

According to the association, the LI demands that all taxi operators brand their vehicles in the accepted taxi colours and display a taxi sign on top of their vehicles.

However, Uber drivers still use private vehicles with no semblance of a taxi.

Speaking on TV3, General Secretary of the Commercial Taxi Drivers Association Steven Nimo, claimed the ministry issued the directive after a stakeholder meeting on January 10, 2018, where Uber was present.

They will be given commercial number plate and licence before they can operate, he revealed.
