The city of Boise is urging Treasure Valley residents to avoid using Uber services until safeguards have been met by the private transportation organization. Uber drivers also face the risk of being ticketed for operating without a business license.
The city of Boise has issued a cease-and-desist order to Uber because of the concerns.

In response to the order, an Uber spokesperson said the service is a safe and reliable transportation option.

Uber began charging passengers this week without an operating agreement in place, which is according to the city, operating a business without a license.
