Uber services officially‘legal’ in Bangladesh

Uber services officially‘legal’ in Bangladesh

According to local media reports published recently, a regional official of Uber says it runs “legal” actions in Bangladesh, although the government is still devising policies on app-based ride-hailing services. Within six months, Dhaka has become one of the fast-growing Uber-using cities in the Asia-Pacific. Locally-made mobile-based services such as Pathao also hit the streets.

But the road transport authorities initially called those services illegal and started a process of devising guidelines for their operations. Uber plans to developed its services to Chittagong and Sylhet and introduce UberPool that matches a user with riders heading in the same direction, so the ride and cost can be shared.
