Boise issues cease and desist letter to Uber

BOISE — City of Boise officials say Uber ignored its promise to not charge for driver services within city limits while negotiating an operating agreement for the ride-share company.

The city sent Uber a cease and desist letter Wednesday morning — the same day the ride-hailing app declared would be its busiest night ever for those seeking a car home.

Officials are also encouraging people to avoid using the company.

According to the city, Uber activated its “pay feature” on its app earlier this week so that drivers could charge passengers —essentially operating like a business even though it didn’t have a proper license.

Uber officials released a statement Wednesday saying it was unfortunate the city was seeking to limit Uber rides but would continue working with officials on an agreement.
