Uber-Colombia announced February 20 that it’s relaunching computerized application-based alternative taxi services, which had been terminated February 1 because the Colombian government ruled that Uber had failed to comply with all legal requirements for such services.

According to the announcement (in Spanish, see: https://www.uber.com/es-SV/blog/uber-se-reinventa-por-colombia/) the newly revised service, “which is temporary, allows [customers] to reach [their] destination by renting a car with a driver. How? By accepting a contract through our application on each occasion and each product, with one additional click.

“In addition, you can customize the conditions of your experience with the [vehicle operator], such as deciding the route you want to follow or the music you want to listen to.

“We want to build an inclusive, flexible, friendly and accessible community for all ... It is our commitment to Colombia. #UberSeReinventaPorColombiaUber reinvents itself to operate again in Colombia and is already providing services.

“Starting at 8 a.m. today February 20, Uber restarted its operation in Colombia . . . We will also offer various services that include traditional and new media such as taxis, so that everyone has the opportunity to take advantage of technology to provide a better service.

“The new platform will offer five services to Colombians: By hours [PorHoras], which will allow people to rent a vehicle with a driver and pay for the time they use it; ‘UberYa,’ with which people can rent a vehicle with driver to move around the city in an agile and reliable way.

“Another of the services will be ‘Economy,’ by which you can rent vehicles with a driver that will include vehicles with not-so-recent models, which can be accessed at a lower price, and will not be available in all cities of Colombia.

“’Comfort’ will be the premium alternative with which you can rent more modern vehicles with driver; ‘Uber XL’ will be aimed at large groups and advise dividing the rental price among all to save,” according to the company.
