Street hail and no cash payment policies
Under Arkansas law, solicitation or acceptance of cash payments from passengers is prohibited. Payments for transportation services provided by driver-partners may only be made electronically, through the Uber app. The solicitation or acceptance of cash payments from passengers may lead to legal penalties and suspension of your ability to accept trip requests from the Uber platform.
In addition, under Arkansas law, a driver-partner may not solicit or accept a passenger who hails the driver from the street; "street hails" are prohibited.
