Uber announces successful first weekend of operation in St. Louis

(KTRS) – During its first weekend of operation in St. Louis, Uber drivers provide more than 5,000 rides. Uber officials say that is on par for the first weekends in markets similar to St. Louis.

The company activated their app on Friday in direct defiance of the St. Louis Taxicab Commission. The commission voted to allow Uber to operate last Friday, but with the requirement that Uber drivers provide fingerprints for a background check. Uber calls that requirement unnecessary, saying their background checks are sufficient.

The ride-hailing company also filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the Taxicab Commission last week.
