MINISTRY OF WORKS AND TRANSPORT MEETS WITH UBER

On January 24th, 2017, Senator the Honourable Rohan Sinanan,  Minister of Works and Transport, the Honourable Faris Al-Rawi, Attorney General,  Mr. Wayne Richards, Transport Commissioner, and a representative from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, met with representatives of Uber to discuss the launching of Uber in Trinidad and Tobago.

 

Arising out of the discussions, the Ministry confirmed the need for strict adherence to the laws of Trinidad and Tobago and requested full disclosure of Uber’s operating structures. Uber undertook to provide full disclosure of all requested information with a view to facilitating the Ministry’s advice on Uber’s legal operation of services under its co-sharing arrangements for transportation.

 

Uber further undertook to disclose its corporate and legislative structures in other jurisdictions as well as its insurance coverage in all markets, including Trinidad and Tobago.

 

As the Minister with responsibility for transport, Senator Sinanan gives the assurance that he will continue to place the interest of the citizenry first and will exercise due diligence in this matter.

The Ministry is actively leading a thorough consideration of the situation and will be in a position to report further in the near future.
