In June 2021, the Ministry of Infrastructure in Slovenia introduced amendments to its Road Transport Act (Zakon o prevozih v cestnem prometu) in order to allow ride-hailing platforms (which as of 2021 means primarily Uber) to operate within its framework and to reduce administrative burdens for drivers. According to the amendments, workers for these platforms now must obtain taxi licenses before they can work as drivers. Other changes to the Road Transport Act include the abolition of the mandatory use of taximeters. The Ministry also signed a letter of intent with Uber to promote cooperation between the company and state agencies. While this supports the operations of ride hailing platforms, working conditions of platform workers are not within the scope of the amendments.
