The Ministry of Transport on Tuesday said it had sent a document requiring Grab Taxi and Uber Vietnam Company to stop ride sharing service for contract cars because it breaks current regulations.
Grab Taxi Company has launched GrabShare service in Vietnam
At present, Grab Taxi has implemented ride sharing service GrabShare and Uber Vietnam is going to launch UberPOOL.
The ministry said that its Decision 24 on pilot application of science and technology in passenger transportation by contracts permits using electronic instead of writing contracts in car rent transactions.
The ministry’s Circular 63 stipulates that transport firms sign one passenger transport contract for each trip.
Basing on these, the ministry required the two companies not to implement GrabShare and UberPOOL to contract cars.
