""(The ACT Government) put in place regulations around background checks, vehicle inspections and insurance, all of which we've had from day one,"" he said.
""And now that's the law in Canberra and we'll be up and running today.""
He applauded the government's forward-thinking and said embracing new technology will only be a positive for consumers.
""What the Chief Minister has done here is actually taken a look at opportunities Aaron Judge Youth Jersey , not just to open up to new things like ride sharing... but also how can they improve options for the taxi industry,"" Rohrsheim said.

The state of Victoria is expected to follow Canberra's lead in allowing Uber to operate legally, following expected changes to legislation and regulations.
