Nope, you will need to pay $538 permit per year plus commercial insurance as well as have DA. Otherwise you will be kicked off road. Bailee drivers will be a thing of the past as it won't be viable to drive for someone else.
Sounds great.
If uber will follow it the surge will be lovely lol

don't bet on it, Uber don't tell you until the day or so before the legislated date for it happens & the clueless ants just keep on driving. They occasionally send out emails stating, 'We don't know whats going on :confused: we are working with the TMR/RTA etc to ascertain what is required blah blah blah.." (meanwhile all the info is posted on the TMR website :rolleyes:, but majority of ants wont research for themselves, don't care or think it doesn't apply to them)

Uber don't want to lose drivers so they tell them as little as possible re regulations, tax etc -- Uber are only interested in you driving & getting them their 25%, its irrelevant to them if you get fined for non compliance with the various legislation's required for rideshare...

There's still (& always will be) an over saturation of ants everywhere as usual... They get fined for non compliance, have a whinge to Uber who say, thanks for reaching out, work harder to pay your fines off... :biggrin: (& they do) :p

Yes in the past when there were no laws around ridesharing. Once the new system comes in, uber will be forced into becoming a legal and ethical company or they are out.

haha legal & ethical :eek:

if Uber don't get their way, they will either baulk the system & go back to paying drivers fines or they'll just pack up & leave.. They will never be ethical & they will only be legal to a point where they feel comfortable, they're not overly phased by governments & their legislation

Legal & ethical to Uber is addressed by bullying & intimidation, disruption etc if the state governments upset Uber they will go back to old methods like sending all pax & drivers precompleted complaint emails of which you only have to 'tap' to send ... this sort of intimidation, disruptive practices is what Uber thinks will make law makers bow to their wishes :confused:

Will Uber Drivers be issued with a new plate for this? or use your existing plate? read the document I thought the 538 was to be applied to Taxi and HC Plates only.

old methods wont work, goverments are tightening the noose slowly. Its game over of they dont comply.

It wont be a level playing field unless everyone pays the same fee. Uber is classed as a hire car, therefore everyone will pay 538. Taxis included. But taxis will have some other costs like paint job and signs. Its a bit confusing as rideshare is meant to have rank and hail later on with a camera and meter. We will wait and see in the second bill. Still hasn't been introduced. Show me the document you saw?
