Poland to change regulation for Uber

Following the taxi drivers’ protests in Europe, Polish politicians are set to introduce regulations that would hinder Uber’s expansion and protect the domestic taxi drivers’ interests, Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza informed.

Currently, Uber is operating in Warsaw, Kraków and the Tri-City. As the company’s workers do not pay taxes and have no licenses required to transport passengers, Poland wants to amend its law and require from Uber’s drivers to operate in the same manner as taxi drivers do.

The daily informed that the ruling Civic Platform has already filed a draft act that would oblige Uber’s drivers to set up a sole proprietorship and pay taxes in the country.
