Prague City Hall and the app-based ride sharing service Uber have signed a memorandum of understanding in which Uber has agreed to meet conditions which would put it on an equal footing with taxi drivers.
The company has agreed to operate a licensed service, with drivers registering and taxing their earnings in the Czech Republic. Uber has also pledged to join the electronic evidence of sales system introduced last year.
Prague and Brno taxi drivers who consider Uber unfair competition, have been protesting against the ride sharing service for months.
