Punjab Government’s Provincial Transport Authority on Monday declared that the ride-hailing service Uber was operating outside regulatory bounds in Lahore. A notification was issued in this regard to the Chief Traffic Officer of Lahore and to the Chief Executive Officer of the Lahore Transport Company. The notification stated that the two companies had been offering transport services “without registering the private cars with any regulatory body.” The notification also stated that the utilization of private cars by Uber for commercial purposes is a violation of the city’s local laws. The provincial government also stated that the failure of Uber to obtain required fitness certificates and route permits for their fleets had resulted in “great loss to the government.”
