There’s been a lot of talk on the ranks about Uber’s recent meeting with the Department of Transport where they told the Minister about their various offerings including the controversial Uberpop facility which in some jurisdictions (not all) offers private vehicles driven by un-vetted drivers (apartfrom Uber vetting).
Inevitably the so called rep bodies and cab companies have jumped on this and are now claiming the Uber are about to get legislation changed to allow for the Uberpop service to be provided here, that’s a very big leap.
Even if the inactive Minister was to get himself motivated to help Uber out (it’d be the first time he’s done anything good bad or indifferent with regard to Taxis) it would be highly unlikely the government would pander to his request.
Do don’t lose any sleep about Uberpop.
