Argentinian Province First to Pass Law Allowing Uber
Argentina’s Mendoza province last Tuesday passed the country’s first law regulating ride-sharing apps such as Uber.
Uber had already been operating in Buenos Aires for more than two years despite prevailing court orders. However, Argentina’s Senate recently voted 24-14 in favor of allowing the firm to operate in the country’s fifth-largest province by population.
Uber’s general manager for the southern cone region of South America, Mariano Otero, says that the law will take effect in August, allowing Uber to operate as early as September.
