If you’re a regular Uber user then you will no doubt have heard that Uber in Cape Town has been battling with the city to get it’s drive-partners proper operating permits. Regulation in the Western Cape has seen Uber cars being impounded and drivers being intimited because they don’t have the necessary metered taxi permits. Uber has been talking to the city for over a year explaining that they do not employ the drivers and that they differ from standard metered taxis. Getting the required licence is a process that should take weeks yet in the past 6 months not a single licence has been granted so a petition has been started to show support and help get Uber Cape Town drivers their operating permits.
I’ve just signed…making me signature 16359 so far.
I’ve said before that i was a late converter to Uber, but now that i’m a regular user it’s hard to imagine using any other taxi service. I wanna keep it that way and i’m sure most of you feel the same. For those of you still taking other means of transport…i was you not so long ago. You won’t know the difference until you try.
Now get involved and help out HERE. Will take a few seconds to show them support.
