Uber is about to stop charging cash to carry out its travel services by application, or at least that was made clear by Jalisco‘s mobility secretary, Diego Monraz, who assured that the Ministry of Mobility is in talks with the company to implement its regularization and thus arrange details so that it continues to operate within the framework of the law.
“We are in dialogues with the state congress for the issue of cash collection, because it should not be on a platform because it distorts the purpose for which it was created that was technology and security. The payment in cash in this type of transport is a setback for mobility in Jalisco, so this year will be of vital importance (review the issue) for changes, “he said.
He justified that service providers in Transport Network Companies, such as Uber, “are not taxis” and therefore should not base or be waiting outside of public places or places, nor charge in cash because then “there they lose security what users are looking for. ” Thus, the state agency seeks a new licensing model to authorize these companies to operate, with new examinations and a new modality, which would be presented in the coming months.
It is worth mentioning that the governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro, announced months before that Uber was not authorized to operate inside the state, for example in Puerto Vallarta, because “it has not complied with a series of requirements in the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara” , so it is expected that once the new model was presented, which would eliminate the collection in cash, it would continue its course in the Jalisco coast.
