Uber starts getting its uberX ACT together in Canberra Featured


Uber has announced the ACT Government is embracing uberX ridesharing and is welcoming uberX to the nation’s capital.

Uber has announced in a media release that ‘sensible, safety-based ridesharing regulations will be in place for the ACT from the end of October, leading the way for permanent legislation in the coming months.’

Given Uber’s troubles with uberX in NSW, where 40 private cars have had their registration suspended, Uber is naturally very pleased to see Canberra set to ‘become the first capital city in the world to introduce specific ridesharing regulations before Uber’s entry into the market.’

Naturally, Uber hopes this leads the way ‘for other State and Territory Governments to follow suit and open up choice and opportunity for all Australians.’

Uber says the ACT Government and its Chief Minister, Andrew Barr, have ‘shown true leadership in their progressive approach to bringing a safe, affordable and reliable point-to-point transport alternative to Canberra through their transparent review process and open and constructive dialogue.’

Uber also says that ‘the ACT Government has not only answered the demands from thousands of Canberrans for economic opportunities and more reliable and affordable transport, but, through their decision, they have also recognised the rights of all Australians to choose how they move around their cities.’

The transportation disrupting global upstart applauds the ACT’s ‘global leadership in embracing ridesharing’ and looks forward to getting on the road in the nation’s capital.
