Uber has let customers know that the government’s new bill would be disastrous. It would limit vehicle supply and double waiting times, in addition to adding significantly to the cost.
The government’s proposal is that the drivers would have to register as workers and pay taxes and health insurance, adding to the cost of the service. It also aims to limit the number of partners (drivers) that can work for the company.
The reform is part of the System of Remunerated Transportation of Persons and Regulation of Transport Technology Platform Companies and has to do with value added tax.
Limiting the number of vehicles or drivers will affect the service. Uber wouldn’t be able to guarantee an efficient service. There may be times of peak demand from the 783 million users in the country when there are no cars available in the zone.
