EBR Parish Attorney: Uber not in compliance with ordinance

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Baton Rouge Business Report reports that Uber has begun to file the required paperwork, but has not turned in everything required to operate in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Uber, a ridesharing app company, still needs to turn in a signed application and a copy of the company's occupational license, among other things.  They are currently operating in East Baton Rouge Parish. Uber began offering their UberX service in Baton Rouge on July 11. 

Assistant Parish Attorney told the Business Report that Uber is not in compliance but it is up to the Taxi Control Board to decide if they want to address the issue or take further action.


Taylor Bennet, a spokesman for the company, says they are completing the paperwork and will have it submitted soon.
