우버엑스 중단 안내 Suspending uberX

한국어 | ENGLISH

오늘부터 우버의 라이드쉐어링 옵션인 우버엑스(uberX) 서비스를 중단하고, 리무진 서비스를 제공하는 프리미엄 옵션인 우버블랙(UberBLACK)은 현행법(여객자동차 운수사업법)에 맞추어 제한 운영하기로 결정하였습니다. 이는 택시업계를 향한 제안의 일부로 이루어진 결정입니다.

서울시 해당부서(택시물류과)와의 논의와 권고에 따라, 당사의 비즈니스가 규제 안에서 정확하게 규정됨으로써 한국의 이용자들과 파트너 운전자들 그리고 지역사회 모두에게 최선이라는 판단 아래 이루어진 결정입니다.

택시업계를 위한 제안의 일부로, 우버는 서울시 택시들의 혁신과 서비스 향상에 도움이 되고자 우버의 플랫폼을 자유롭게 이용할 수 있도록 지속적인 서비스를 제공할 것입니다. 우버 플랫폼의 활용은 택시운전자와 택시 회사, 그리고 소비자 모두에게 혜택을 가져올 것이라고 믿습니다.

서울시의 리더쉽과 지원으로 인해, 여러 분분한 시각들은 재조명 되어 왔고 그 결과로 하나의 대책으로 모아졌습니다. 이번 결과는 택시 산업과 그간 논의 되어 왔던 제안 내용에 기인한 것이기도 합니다. 당사는 서울시와 택시 업계와의 타협점을 도달하는 데 있어 협력할 것이며, 함께 규제옵션을 모색할 것을 기대합니다.

Effective today, we are suspending uberX, our ridesharing platform, and operate UberBLACK as prescribed by current law. This decision was made as part of a proposal to the Taxi Industry.

After consulting with Seoul City Transport Division, and taking their advice, we determined it was in the best interests of Korean riders, drivers and the community as a whole to further define our business offerings within the current confines of the regulatory framework, without ambiguity.

As part of our proposal to the Taxi Industry, we will provide all Seoul Taxis with free access to Uber platform. This will help create innovation and enhancement to their services in Seoul. We believe that the use of the Uber application by taxis will benefit both the taxi driver, the taxi companies and consumers.

Largely due to the leadership and courage of the Transport Division, many divergent views have been refocused, and united into a singular path forward. This has resulted in the proposals being discussed with the Taxi Industry. We stay committed to cooperate to reach a compromise with the City and Taxi Industry, and look forward to working together to bring regulated options to Seoul.
