Jul 20, 2017 Politics Comments Off on Government reiterates tip-off rewards for ‘illegal’ UberEATS
Taipei--The Ministry of Transportation and Communications reiterated on Thursday that it continues to offer members of the public rewards who report activities by ride-hailing company Uber's food delivery app, UberEATS, which is illegal in Taiwan, as part of an effort to clamp down on the company.
The ministry said that the rewards range from NT$10,000 (US$328) to NT$100,000 per report of the illegal food delivery service. The maximum reward for any individual will be capped at NT$300,000 per year, it added.
Meanwhile, the ministry is strengthening cooperation with other government agencies in a concerted effort to stop the illegal service, it said, while urging the public to refrain from using it.
UberEATS, which began its service in Taiwan last November, is illegal because the company has not registered as a freight forwarder but still provides a goods delivery service, the ministry said.
It charges users who order food through its app and pays the drivers who deliver the food to customers, it added.
According to the law, the fine against companies that operate illegal transportation services, including for passengers and freight, is NT$1 million-NT$25 million. For an individual driver, the fine is a minimum of NT$100,000.
