Uber is coming to Belfast
Uber will be launching in Belfast next Friday.
The taxi app which made it big in the States before landing in UK cities starting with London in 2012, is finally coming over to Belfast.
It has been confirmed by the company that it will launch on December 11th, with taxi drivers having been invited to an information session today.
The DOE confirmed that Uber has been given a Taxi Operator Licence.
The Uber drivers will require a valid Private Hire Driver’s Licence from the DVA.
This isn’t the first Irish city to catch the taxi-app company’s attention, Uber has been operating in Dublin since 2014.

A possibly threatened Fona Cab tweeted: “We already have a fleet of over 550 AccessNI cleared drivers to handle your journey.”
Could this mean the end of listening to the never-ending dial tone, praying Value Cabs will answer?
