Is UBER available in Mauritius?

UBER is not available in Mauritius yet. (Last update: JAN 2018)

American taxi app Uber delivered a transport revolution – but concerns were frequently raised about passenger safety.  

So, What Is Uber?

Although Uber is convenient and simple to use, there are many disadvantages and risks that come with the car service. A predominant issue about the Uber car service is safety. Uber cars are not equipped with cameras and are not registered as commercial vehicles unlike regulated taxis in Mauritius. Similarly, the drivers do not receive a full background check and they can simply operate as a driver as long as they have a valid license and car insurance. This can be unsafe as amateur drivers can break taxi by laws. On the other hand, because it is so easy for drivers to find passengers, that the drivers may not be as motivated to keep up their high standards of professionalism and safety.

The UberPOP app was ruled illegal by the French government last year, but the U.S. company hasn’t yet exhausted all legal recourse and has told its drivers to keep operating. Here is a picture when the Taxicab drivers in Paris, Marseilles and Lyons, France, joined by drivers from Brussels, Belgium, disrupted traffic on June 25 and fought with police in their battle against the multinational car-service corporation, Uber.

We surely do not want to experience same in our beautiful island, Mauritius ~
