Earlier this month, the rideshare service Uber appeared in Burlington. Uber is an app-based service that allows passengers to use mobile and other devices to call for a ride when they need one.
But last week, Burlington’s city attorney announced that Uber and its drivers were in violation of city law. That’s not new for Uber, which has faced regulatory challenges nearly everywhere it operates.
Mike Isaac, technology reporter for the New York Times, spoke with Vermont Edition about the roadblocks Uber has faced in other markets.
