Update: Is Lyft available in Taipei, Taoyuan or anywhere in Taiwan?
February 2, 2017 - City
During my recent trip to Taipei, I was hoping to use one of my remaining Lyft credits.
But when I opened up the Lyft app in the center of the city, I got the familiar map that you see from the Lyft app, but immediately an image popped up telling me:
“Lyft is not yet available here.”
Bummer. As we’ve discussed before, we prefer Lyft. Unfortunately, Uber was the only ridesharing service that was available there. It’s especially a bummer considering their passive support for Donald Trump.
UPDATE: Reuters is reporting that Uber will end their services in Taiwan due to recent regulations and fines aimed at Uber specifically.
