Ángela Mendoza, Uber’s managing director in Colombia, mentioned that the country needs to improve legislation on mobility practices., the exit of competitors and the future of the company in the country. The directive also mentioned expansion plans and the effects of the increase in gasoline prices in the country.

We are confident that it is possible to achieve a modern regulation that has a positive impact on the economy and joint mobility of Colombian cities. From Uber, through our union, AllianceWe will continue to support efforts to achieve successful regulatory resolution and a public policy that flexibly responds to the mobility and additional earnings needs of the people of the country. It should be clear that regulation of digital platforms will have the potential to foster greater opportunities for people, drive more investment, open markets and options for everyone, from users, landlords and taxi drivers, who benefit from this technology today.

It is our priority to continue to create innovative solutions that meet the needs of users, renters, taxi drivers and other members of society. We have been in Colombia for more than nine years and we will continue to strengthen our presence in the country with a fundamental axis: moving towards a greener, cleaner Colombia that is a cornerstone for sustainability. Likewise, we will continue to bring technology to new cities and provide more mobility solutions for people, but especially in terms of offering greater benefits and profits to renters.

We’ve facilitated more than 350 million journeys through the app since 2013. In addition, economic opportunities have been created for more than 720,000 people and more than 60,000 active homeowners to date. In 2022, we are innovating to give people more mobility and earning options. With the Uber Agreement, a rental model implemented in Colombia before any other country in the world, we carried the Uber application to new cities such as Pasto and Villavicencio. This model is used to pre-negotiate and acknowledge the value of journeys. Today, Uber operates in 16 cities and we are 100% integrated with Cornershop by Uber, an option where users can purchase items from the supermarket or more than 120 specialty stores.
