Uber claims that the taxi driver’s behavior today poses a threat to the citizens, tourists and infrastructure of the city.
“Blocking cities during a hit tourist weekend in Croatia, which lives off of tourism, is absolutely unacceptable. The taxi driver’s behavior poses a threat to the citizens, tourists and infrastructure of the city,” said Uber when asked to comment on the taxi driver’s current strike. Dalmatinski Portal reports the details on July 28, 2017.
“In response to the violent behavior of taxi drivers in Split and Dubrovnik, we have immediately organized additional UberBOAT services today so that tourists and citizens can safely and quickly access blocked airports and reach their destinations. The price of UberBOAT today has been adjusted to the price of Uber vehicles, allowing everyone freedom of movement,” Uber added.
The company continued by saying that Uber is used by more than 100,000 Croatian citizens and tourists from more than 118 countries.
“In the tourist season, which has never been better because of the increased number of tourists but has already been threatened by the fires in Dalmatia, we believe that the blockage of key tourist centers is absolutely unacceptable and is selfish behavior. Such a negligent act affects everyone – citizens, tourists, the economy, and all of Croatia,” Uber concluded.
