PRC denies Uber’s application to operate in ABQ

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. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
