After the Supreme Court rejected a guardianship that was intended by two drivers of Uber legalization, the US multinational made a new call to the government to initiate a dialogue and achieve a regulation for this type of applications that provides transport services.
Uber in Colombia affirmed that they are willing to sit down with their team and officials designated by the central government to initiate talks on these types of technological initiatives that are already being adopted by several Colombians.
“We’d like to find ways of dialogue with the government for the creation of a specific regulation, different from the existing one, that develops and encourages the use of mobility alternatives, and whose fundamental principle is to privilege the common good of millions of citizens,” said the Uber communications team in the country.
Therefore, they are still waiting for the future of a bill based in the Congress of the Republic that seeks regulations for more than 15 such applications.
The statements are given in the middle of the decision of the Supreme Court of Justice that decided to reject a guardianship presented by a citizen who wanted the Ministry of Transportation to regulate the use of the platform.
“We have had knowledge of a sentence of protection issued by the Constitutional Court in October of last year. The actions were presented by two driving partners who use the application.”
They added, additionally, that the Court has limited itself to recapitulating the pretensions and arguments of the intervening parties in the process without adopting a position of substance, declaring only the inadmissibility of the guardianship as a procedural mechanism to obtain such claims.
