On Monday, September 14, Uber Panama launched a new service called “Uber for Business” or U4B. This service aims to provide a taxi option with safety, efficiency and ease of use to companies in Panama.
Company executives can register in U4B and authorize who in their company can use the service, providing precise usage times, points of departure, arrival and other detailed rules, all from a single control platform which facilitates estimation and reporting of expenditures.
U4B was launched last year in several US cities such as Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, DC and in July of this year in Mexico City and Guadalajara.
