Uber reverses position

Uber has announced that it will stay in Macau, according to a press release posted on their official website. Over the past few weeks, the ride-sharing mobile application company has organised an online petition that managed to obtain some 23,000 signatures. About 300 protesters took to the streets on September 5 to support the operations of the enterprise, as previously reported by local media. Some 378 Uber rides have been caught by police since last October and fined over MOP10 million (US$1.25 million).
