Uber has been served.

UberCab Inc. has been issued a cease and desist order from the SF Metro Transit Authority & the Public Utilities Commission of California. While we are looking into the issues raised, we believe that the service we offer is in compliance with the cited regulations.

UberCab is a first to market, cutting edge transportation technology and it must be recognized that the regulations from both city and state regulatory bodies have not been written with these innovations in mind. As such, we are happy to help inform the regulatory bodies on this new generation of technology and work closely with both agencies to ensure compliance and keep our service available for our truly Uber users and their drivers.

Our commitment is to facilitate an improved transportation option that provides safe, reliable, and convenient travel. That will not change. We will continue full speed ahead with the mission of making San Francisco city a great place to live and travel.

UPDATE:

In order for a driver to successfully use the UberDriver app, we require proof of a valid TCP license and proper insurance as a livery service provider. In addition, the Uber community rates their driver after every trip. If the user generated rating for a driver drops below our standard we remove the driver from the system.

To avoid confusion, we’ve removed the word cab from our name. We’ve always been Uber, but now it’s official.
