UBER Comes to Montana August 2016
It is official. UBER has finally got the "green light" to begin ride sharing in Montana next month. As someone who has worked in the bar industry in Montana, I have seen first hand how the lack of cabs can lead to people making poor decisions. With UBER, we should hopefully see a drastic drop in the amount of DUIs issued in the state, as well as the amount of alcohol related crashes in Big Sky Country.
According to a recent article in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle,
Uber was approved to operate by the state’s Public Service Commission in December, after Senate Bill 396 — which revised the state’s motor carrier laws — passed the Legislature last May. More than 100 Gallatin Valley residents have since signed up to drive for the $62 billion company.
UBER drivers must be licensed drivers and apply to be a UBER driver. If you would like more info on how you can sign up to make some extra money driving with UBER, click here.
