另外,Uber 將在跨年當天增加更多的車輛,以確保每個人皆可叫的到車喔!Uber 在此提醒您,跨年當天由於交通管制,如使用 Uber 叫車,請與司機約定上車地點。您可先在交通管制範圍內叫車,再與司機確認可上車的地點即可。 為鼓勵更多與 Uber 合作的司機在尖峰時間上路載客,故 Uber 將實施加成計費功能,此將於全球跨年夜期間實施。當然在路上空車數量足夠時,車資費率也會自動下降。這樣做是為了確保即使在跨年夜,Uber 永遠都能提供可靠的服務。詳細的加成計費資訊,請詳閱 2013 跨年之夜。 在此也預祝您新年快樂 🙂 我們 2014 見囉!想知道 Uber 的新年新希望嗎?讓您隨時隨地都能叫到車!

We also wanted to give you a quick head’s up about the big night everyone’s thinking about – New Year’s Eve. You may not know who you’ll be kissing just yet come midnight, but you can be sure that we’ll be asking as many partnered drivers to come out as we can to make sure that you have a reliable ride! If you’ll be one of the partygoers in XinYi Area on that night – traffic has been restricted in the following zones (map above), so no vehicles will be able to enter the area! You can still request cars using Uber within the area – just make sure you talk to your driver to figure out where you two can meet outside of the requested zone! Or simply move your pin outside of the zone to designate a pickup spot!

Additionally, to ensure that we will have the most reliable ride on that night and to encourage drivers to come out on the busiest and most traffic heavy night of the year, surge pricing may be in effect on that night. Surge price may kick in during periods of excessive demand, and of course will fall to normal levels when there are enough available cars on the road. To learn more about surge pricing, please see this blog post.

Happy Holidays to you from the whole Uber team! Our resolution for 2014 is that you’ll always have a safe, comfortable, and reliable ride!

車輛共享合法化:若台灣有另一種更適合的運輸法規?

全世界現已有超過100個地區(包括城市、州、國家)因應車輛分享趨勢重新檢視運輸法規,並且制訂新的規管方法;新的法規不僅能提供共享產業更明確的在地發展空間,同時也透過規範確實保障公眾與乘客安全。這些新法可能因各地文化、交通體系、既有管理辦法的不同而有差異,但共同點在於皆以認同共享平台的價值出發。

Uber 在全球持續努力與各地政府溝通合作,在台灣,我們同樣期望能將此接納平台價值的管理架構作為與台灣政府討論的重點。Uber 在全球與各地政府在法規管理上亦有不同的學習,其中都包括保障以下三點原則:

– 行程安全保障:運用智慧科技確保每一趟行程的安全。
– 駕駛人權益:彈性經濟制度與數據化的效率提升-為駕駛人帶來更多的經濟可能,更自由賺取額外收入。
– 消費者選擇:尊重市場機制,創造具備競爭的市場環境,讓駕駛與消費者可選擇不同平台,並且由市場供需決定價格

在許多地方,職業計程車的相關法規在網際網路出現之前就已經完成。過去十年之間,因為科技發展,這些法規也開始面臨許多挑戰。在網路時代,大家已經明白線上拍賣平台不是零售商、訂房網站不是旅館業,管理 YouTube 或直播平台與電視台的也有不同的規管辦法…
