Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Rural Taxis and Rural Transport Programme: Discussion
Mr. Gerard Macken:
On Uber share, if I go into an isolated area, how will I get paid if apps do not work on my phone? If I do not get cash in a rural area, I will not get paid by an app. UberPool is all right in the middle of London and Dublin where everything works fine but the issue of providing services in rural areas where people cannot even get 1G, never mind 3G, has not been properly examined.
