A Frankfurt court earlier this month instituted a temporary injunction against Uber from offering car-sharing services across Germany. San Francisco-based Uber, which allows users to summon taxi-like services on their smartphones, offers two main services, Uber, its classic low-cost, limousine pick-up service, and Uberpop, a newer ride-sharing service, which connects private drivers to passengers - an established practice in Germany that nonetheless operates in a legal grey area of rules governing commercial transportation.

Uber no longer looking at Puerto Vallarta market

Deputy Chairman of the State Congress of Jalisco, Alejandro Hermosillo, announced that Uber has indicated that Puerto Vallarta is not among the company plans for expansion in Mexico after reviewing the area for several months.

“Unofficially, they (Uber) told me that it’s not in their growth plans to reach Vallarta, understand that the situation here is complicated by the taxi unions and I think, if they want to enter, they would have to open up working groups to find a way.”

The “Uber Law” went into effect last week across the state, which regulates transportation companies. With this, the possibility that other transport companies working within digital systems (or digital application), may operate in Puerto Vallarta and bring competition to the taxi industry.

“Now there is a legal possibility for local businesses like City Drive, or companies arising from here or elsewhere, may operate throughout the state,” said Alejandro Hermosillo.

Uber may also enter the market in the future.
