Arguing that the transport company Uber "works without any legal authorization" in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, the governor of the entity, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez, banned it from operating in the municipality.
Uber is banned in Puerto Vallarta
Through his Facebook account, the state governor pointed out that Uber's operation in Puerto Vallarta is "outlawed", so "we will put a stop in that city".
"I committed myself that in this first year of government we will work so that mobility and public transportation in Jalisco are orderly; neither Uber nor any other transport network company will be the exception, "the president wrote.
He added: "Today, Uber in #PuertoVallarta works without any legal authorization, they are outlawed; for that reason and for the safety of Vallartans and tourists, I declared that we will put a stop to them in that city. "
Meanwhile, Uber will not have problems to continue serving in the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara, since during the last administration, headed by Aristóteles Sandoval, its operation was adapted in the Mobility and Transportation Law of the State of Jalisco.
This, according to Alfaro Ramírez, "limits its operation only to the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara; here they are conditioned from the start to meet a series of requirements to be able to authorize their operation within the state ".
"(In Puerto Vallarta) they did not do it and for that reason, they can not operate outside of Guadalajara. The law is clear and we are going to make it happen, "said the Jalisco governor.
