>>>Uber, Lyft suspend service in Austin over fingerprint rule
In 2014, Uber had temporarily been denied the right to operate in the state of Nevada by state officials. Clark County officials with the Nevada Transportation Authority shut Uber down until they could meet the state requirements in 2015. The requirements included obtaining the correct business license and having the correct insurance for its drivers, according to Reno Gazette-Journal.
Louisville International Airport
This Kentucky airport had suspended the taxi service in November 2015 due to not having the correct permits and not paying airport fees. Eventually, Uber and the airport reached an understanding with Uber paying $2 per trip for every pick up from the airport and a monthly $500 fee to operate at the airport. According to a prepared release posted to the airport web site, there is not a fee to drop passengers off at the airport.
Many states and cities are worried about Uber’s process of gathering information from its drivers. Some do not feel that it is as in-depth as it needs to be.
An Ohio man, Chad Rodebaugh, who was a former North Carolina Uber driver told Dayton Daily News today all he had to do was fill out the background check and send in his insurance information then wait about five days to receive confirmation of his employment with company. Rodebaugh said he once had a passenger from the Chapel Hill area say another Uber driver had told that passenger he had a DUI but was still driving.
