Uber has asked the Portuguese independent transport regulator the Instituto de Mobilidade e dos Transportes (IMT), to be able to operate in Portugal, the day a new law covering these electronic platforms came into force.

Uber asks to operate under new rules

 

Uber has more than 6,500 drivers in the country.

 

The company said that it is “committed to fully comply with the law so the Portuguese cities, drivers and users can continue to benefit from the potential offered by the new technologies under this new regulatory framework”.

 

Uber has been operating in 18 areas in and around Lisbon and Porto and in the Algarve since 2014.

 

A new law came into force on 1 November that governs electronic transport platforms such as Uber or Cabify, after many months of parliamentary discussions and protests by taxi drivers.
