Uber reaches agreement with government

The ride-sharing service Uber has reached an agreement with the government on conditions which would bring the service on an equal footing with regular taxi drivers.

Following a meeting with Uber representatives on Thursday, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš said the app-based service had agreed to use licensed-only drivers who would register and tax their earnings.

Prague and Brno taxi drivers have repeatedly protested against Uber, which they see as unfair competition.
