COVID-19: activation information for new drivers

May 15 / Taiwan

As cities respond to COVID-19, government agencies are closing temporarily and more people are staying home. This means account activation is delayed at this time and it may take longer to get on the road. Please note that drivers may experience fewer trip requests from riders and lower earnings than usual. In consideration of this please see the below information regarding onboarding which has been released by Uber electronic platform and cooperating fleets.

1. Personal document requirements for activation

You can find minimum requirements below for becoming a MPT driver, joining a MPT fleet, and activating your account. As some local governments may be affected by the epidemic and are busy in dealing with the epidemic prevention and daily operations, you may see delays in processing your documentation.
