Costa Rican regulators give green light for Uber

Friday, June 16, 2017

The ride-hailing app Uber will continue operating in Costa Rica, as both Aresep, the public services regulator and the public transportation council have ruled out blocking the software.

The rulings, issued on Wednesday, responded to complaints from taxi drivers’ unions who demanded the agencies block the app. The unions maintain that Uber’s operations in Costa Rica are illegal.

The agencies, however, concluded that they do not have the authority to block an app; currently, Costa Rica has no legislation allow them to do so.
