ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A big bump in the road for the ride sharing service Uber.
The state says they can’t operate here in Albuquerque.
Wednesday the public regulation commission denied the company’s application for a temporary permit to provide service.
The PRC says the decision is because Uber doesn’t meet the state’s definition of a specialized passenger service.
However, the commission also voted to consider amending its rules to include provisions for transportation companies like Uber.
A timeline for the rulemaking has not yet been set.
