What is Uber?
Uber is a ride-hailing firm that provides the Uber mobile app. With this app, you may request a journey that will be instantly delivered to an Uber driver nearby and let them know where you are. The accepting Uber driver will pick you up and take you to the specified location.
Without you having to speak to the driver or take out your money, the Uber app determines the driver's navigational path, calculates the distance and charge, and transmits the payment from your chosen payment method to the driver.
When did Uber come to Jamaica?
Since June 15th 2021, the app has been released with a "vehicle-with-driver" agreement in Jamaica. It claimed that the app acts as a conduit for communication between a lessor partner and a user, who consents to sign a private lease contract each time they need to travel within the city.
The corporation pointed out that under this approach, the user and the lessor partner sign a private agreement that requires strict adherence to the restrictions. The business also stated that Guardian Insurance covers all leases.
