    That would be a no.

    Taxi & Uber

However, if you are in any of the zones listed above and traveling within those zones Uber is cheaper than a taxi. Before you hit the request an Uber ride, check the estimated fare.
    Thanks for that info. Paladin. Been quite a few years since I was in BA but will be visiting soon. Obviously Uber is paid via CC. Do Taxis generally accept payment by credit card?

    Thanks,

Most of the Uber drivers have other jobs and are interesting people to talk to.
    I agree Uber was great there last month. Sorry to hear they are thinking of shutting them down. Cabs in town are okay but Uber is cheaper and Uber is a real bargain for rides to outlying zones and to Grand BA (200pesos got me a 25 minute ride on the highway from microcenter including tolls). Uber drivers seem a lot like Uber drivers in the states, just looking to make an living.

    Yet it's not Blocked and you can still use it.

    A city judge ordered that Uber be blocked today. Prosecutors also requested that the executive be taken into custody . The judge refused to take them into custody and new at the time he issued his order that it was ineffective and would have to be heard by a higher court because he only has the ability to make local decisions and not national decisions. So the site is up and running and it will be a while before a higher court can make a decision to eliminate it for the entire country. The judge was just playing politics because if he really wanted it shut down he would have taken the executives in custody which he could have done since they are in the city. He is doing what politicians everywhere do. Pander to the poor while allowing corporations to continue making money.

I don't know if you can take it from EZE but you can from the other airport AEP. I have also taken it to EZE and AEP.
    Argentine Judge just ordered Uber blocked but has not ordered the arrest of the companys´s management yet.

    Absolutely use Uber

    I have been here for a month and only use Uber. I have never had any problems. They are half the price of a taxi. I probably take 6 a day or so and have never had problem . Two are three of them have asked me to ride in the front , but I'm happy to say my hundred plus rides have been great and average about 3 USD. I think it's the only way to travel.

    If anyone realizes that you are riding in an Uber driven vehicle it is very likely that your vehicle will be surrounded and every window will be destroyed and the driver may actually get Lynched right before your eyes .

    That is about how bad It can get .

    Uber is outlawed in Argentina and the Taxi drivers are extremely territorial but If you are lacking excitement in your life it may be worth a shot or bullet .
