Figures Demonstrate Uber’s Strength in Croatia

Total Croatia News

In the last two years, Uber has become a major player in Croatia’s market.

Uber has been present in Croatia since October 2015, and it has become one of the biggest players in the local taxi market. Its impressive growth is best illustrated by the figures which demonstrate its strength, reports on January 25, 2018.

Uber currently has more than 3,000 driver partners throughout Croatia. For comparison, there are about 2,000 taxi drivers.

It is present in seven towns – Zagreb, Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Šibenik, Novalja, and Dubrovnik. According to the analysis of the other markets where Uber operates, as well as the monthly growth rate of the number of new driver partners, in the next two years, it is expected that the number of Uber drivers will grow by another 10,000.

Uber’s app is actively used by over 150,000 Croatian citizens. This summer, as many as 115,000 tourists used Uber on the Croatian coast and additional 35,000 users in Zagreb. Currently, Uber offers five services – UberX, UberSelect, UberVan, uberBoat and Uber Child Safety Seat.

In order to adapt to the Croatian law on receipt registration, Uber has developed an adaptation of its app, which is a unique case in the world. Each Uber driver is connected to the Tax Administration servers, and each trip is automatically reported in real time, so Uber’s driver partners cannot conclude a ride without issuing a receipt.

“Uber’s app is the same all over the world, and with the changes made exclusively for Croatia, we have demonstrated just how much this market is important to Uber. This is a unique adaptation of this type of the app in Europe, and we have invested several hundred thousand kuna in its development. With this unique adaptation of our app, we have once again confirmed how vital transparency, traceability and regulation compliance are for us.

The change brings benefits to both drivers and users, as well as to the Tax Administration. It saves users waiting time for the receipt to be issued, drivers can drive without worrying about administrative issues, and the Tax Administration receives real-time revenue data from all drivers, which cannot be influenced by possible human errors,” said Davor Tremac, the general manager of Uber for Southeastern Europe.
