Is Uber Leaving Houston??

Author: Lauren Kelly

On average, I use Uber almost EVERY weekend here in Houston. Whether it’s for safety reasons, or just not worrying about the hassell of parking in general, Uber has always been a great way for me to get around town.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Uber has issued an ultimatum to Houston to reform its rules for allowing drivers to partner with the company or it will leave town.

We have worked hard and taken extraordinary steps to help guide drivers through the current process in Houston,” Uber’s Houston manager Sarfraz Maredia told City Council in a letter Wednesday afternoon. “However, a year and a half later, it is clear the regulations are simply not working for the people of this city.”

We have not set a specific deadline,” she said. “We want to work with the city to develop regulations that work for riders, drivers and the entire community. We understand this process may take a few months.”
