Uber and Grab Taxi still offer car-sharing service



In last June, the Ministry of Transport ordered Uber and Grab Taxi to stop their car-sharing services as it was not in accordance with the law. However, the service is still widely used since it can help passengers save up to 40% of the original fare.

It also helps reduce the number of cars on the streets. 

The representative of the Ministry of Justice said that banning car-sharing was unreasonable. "It's also hindering taxi firms from saving costs by transporting multiple unrelated passengers on the same route."

The Ministry of Justice sent an official document to the Ministry of Transport in last August, stating that the road traffic law does not ban car-sharing. Banning car-sharing services therefore restrict the rights to make contracts and is unconstitutional.

The Ministry of Justice also wants to reconsider another regulation from the Ministry of Transport which bans transportation firms from picking up passengers on a regular basis at their offices or any other location that is not approved by the local people's committee.

According to the Ministry of Justice, this regulation failed to clarify its intended purpose and will prevent agencies and firms from hiring third parties to carry their employees. The Ministry of Transport was asked to review all regulations and revise and remove those that are no longer suitable.
