Uber wins injunction to operate without concession in Q. Roo despite protests
Uber wins the right to operate without a concession in Quintana Roo. Uber can now legally operate in the state, providing tourists and locals with transportation.
Even though taxi drivers were against it, Uber won an injunction that lets it operate without a concession on the streets of Quintana Roo.
This was okayed by the Third Collegiate Court in Cancun. The judges there decided that Uber is not subject to transportation laws because it is not public transportation but a private service.
So, Uber will now be able to legally work in Quintana Roo, which made the company happy.
So far, there have been no reports of damage to roads. However, people are worried that cab drivers may block roads because they don't like Uber being in the state.
It's important to note that the magistrates' decision was also based on the fact that Uber could be another way to get around in the state, which is one of the states with the most tourists.
