Brakes on Uber

Mt Barker resident Peter Lane is still unable to offer rideshare services in his hometown, despite the State Government giving rideshare platforms the green light to operate there last year.

A major rideshare company claims State Government rules are locking the popular service out of parts of the Hills, even after providers were given the green light to operate there last year.
The State Government announced a trial of rideshare in the Hills in February last year about three months after a Transport Department crackdown pushed the service out of parts of the region in 2019.
