The alternative Uber taxi service returned to Slovakia after more than a year, officially restarting in Bratislava on April 25 at 10:00.

“We’re glad that we can return to Bratislava with a fully licensed service currently available in the Uber app,” said Ash Kebriti, general manager of Uber for the Central and Eastern Europe region, as quoted in a press release.

The company is ready to continue working with local authorities since they develop services that help solve the increasing transport needs of Slovakia and form the future of municipal mobility, he added.

Licensed drivers only

One of the reasons for re-launching the service now is the ice hockey world championship, which starts in Slovakia on May 10. However, Uber will not launch the app in Košice, which is also hosting the matches, Kebriti told the press conference, as reported by the SITA newswire.

The company wants to work with licensed drivers only. It plans to keep the prices at their original level, and is not thinking about their increase.
