Ride-sharing service Uber has confirmed it is pulling out of Broward County on July 31, citing some of the most “onerous” regulations in the country.

A spokesperson for Uber said, “Broward County officials implemented one of the most onerous regulatory frameworks for ridesharing in the nation. Unfortunately, these new rules raise substantial barriers for local entrepreneurs and make it impossible for us to continue providing the standard of service people have come to expect in Broward County.

“We have no choice but to suspend operations on July 31st. We hope the Board of County Commissioners will revisit the issue when they return from break and work with us to bring Uber back to Broward.”
