The “Uber Law” went into effect last week across the state, which regulates transportation companies. With this, the possibility that other transport companies working within digital systems (or digital application), may operate in Puerto Vallarta and bring competition to the taxi industry.

“Now there is a legal possibility for local businesses like City Drive, or companies arising from here or elsewhere, may operate throughout the state,” said Alejandro Hermosillo.

Uber may also enter the market in the future.
