Mexico City could become the first city in the world to limit the number of Uber cars. This according to an exclusive report in Reuters. The city is considering draft legislation which would also set a minimum value on the vehicles that it uses of $15, 909.

This is to ensure that the cars used would be of decent quality for the Uber passengers who ride in them.

Uber said that such a move would ruin its services in the city and force it to raise its rates.

It told Reuters, “This would imply the end of Uber X. This would dramatically increase the cost and decrease availability for Mexican riders.”

Meanwhile, the world’s largest ride sharing service Uber is now offering its new uberPOOL flat rates in Manhattan below 96th Street. The rates are $10 or less.

The company claims that this service will save riders up to 50% on the cost of traditional taxis.

Uber promises that with this limited time offer, match or no match, your fare will only be up to $10. Trips that cost less than the $10 regular uberX fare will be charged as normal.

Uber boasts that, “With uberPOOL, our carpool option, riders traveling a similar route are able to share a ride—and share the cost. Riding uberPOOL guarantees you a cheaper fare, and only adds a few minutes to your trip.”
