Uber digital platform drivers will start to carry credentials for passenger safety.
The Secretary of Transportation of Jalisco will require drivers of the private digital transportation platform Uber, in Puerto Vallarta, to use the identification credential of each of the drivers for passenger safety.
Diego Monraz Villaseñor, Jalisco's Secretary of Transportation, informed that the issuance of badges is part of the Law of Mobility and Transportation of the State of Jalisco, in addition to the fact that this measure will offer the necessary safety guarantees for their daily transfers.
