Car services, Oklahoma Corporation Commission voice UberX concerns


OKLAHOMA CITY — UberX, a new app for ordering car service in Oklahoma City is raising concerns among registered car services and the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

UberX executives said they vet all drivers through background checks, city knowledge tests and driving record checks before installing the technology in drivers’ cars.

However, Oklahoma Corporation Commission officials said what the company has not done is apply for a permit.

UberX states their comprehensive insurance policy covers all their drivers.

Uber officials said, according to city codes, they have the right to operate within the city.

The OCC is investigating UberX to determine whether or not they will be able to remain in Oklahoma City as a ride sharing service without having to register with the state.

OCC officials are warning all passengers, regardless of which company you choose, make sure it is legal and registered with the OCC.
