UBER chooses not to do business in Iowa City


Well-Known Member
Out of all the places I've driven a cab, Iowa City's taxi regulations are the most lenient. Requirements: A chaffeurs (sp) license (no testing required), A Dmv and criminal background check, photo ID visible to pax, minimum driving age 25.... The only additional requirement for an uber requirement is full commercial ins coverage on said vehicle driving UBER.

Here is an article of Iowa City's recent upgrade on regulations. The city powers that be said Ridesharing Services are welcome as long as they follow the same regulations as taxis/limo and other transportation services. Why they have a problem with DMV and criminal backgrounds checks being done by the city, I have no idea. Anyways here's the article.
