March 7th, 2016 by

A Frankfurt court earlier this month instituted a temporary injunction against Uber from offering car-sharing services across Germany. San Francisco-based Uber, which allows users to summon taxi-like services on their smartphones, offers two main services, Uber, its classic low-cost, limousine pick-up service, and Uberpop, a newer ride-sharing service, which connects private drivers to passengers - an established practice in Germany that nonetheless operates in a legal grey area of rules governing commercial transportation.

Uber and other ride-sharing services have transformed transportation using popular technologies including social networks, smartphones and GPS navigation devices. Using an app, Uber connects drivers and riders in close proximity at about half the cost of a standard taxi. In the past year, taxi in the U.S. fell from 52% to 32% while Uber use rose from 9%-29% among business travelers.
Uber drivers set their own schedule; over half of its drivers work less than 10 hours a week. Uber offers an alternative to existing transit services and often provides access beyond bus routes and taxi service areas.

The Uber concept meshes well with Kia’s commitment to technology, green business and driver safety. Locally, Uber has made Charleston more accessible, helped to alleviate traffic and parking congestion downtown and reduce drunk driving.

To promote the Uber concept, Kia Country of Charleston offers an additional $500, in addition to the $2000 Kia incentive, to qualifying Charleston area buyers.
