Uber to cease ops in Thailand, under scrutiny in Vietnam

Uber to cease ops in Thailand, under scrutiny in Vietnam
The Southeast Asian nation’s Department of Land Transport said drivers picking up fare-paying passengers via Uber’s app were neither registered nor insured to drive commercial vehicles, and that Uber’s credit-card payment system did not comply with regulations. 

“They have to stop operations immediately,” Director-General said after meeting officials from Uber and rival cab-hailing apps GrabTaxi and EasyTaxi to discuss regulating Internet taxi services. The meeting was arranged before a passenger in New Delhi reported she had been raped by a driver contracted to Uber. The incident brought taxi apps to the attention of Indian authorities, who on Tuesday banned all unregistered Internet taxi firms from operating in the capital.
