Taiwan has Uber. It was briefly banned for a couple months last year as the government added regulations for Uber, but it is available now.

It is and it isn't:

"Uber is back in Taiwan, two months after it was unceremoniously banned — but it's not all good news for drivers there.

Under Uber's new agreement with regulators, it only be able to operate again in Taipei by using licensed commercial drivers, rather than private drivers.

SEE ALSO: Uber is pretty much throwing in the towel in Taiwan

"Drivers have to be licensed commercial drivers working for rental car companies," an Uber spokesperson told Mashable.

This effectively blocks regular folk wanting to operate as ride-sharing drivers."

I used the real Uber all the time in Taiwan and really liked it. My homeys who have tested the waters with the "new Uber" tell me it's generally even more expensive than regular taxis and cars are few and far between.

Thanks
Taxis are cheap. Uber was always pointless. You would only Uber to be a fancy lad.

Take the new MRT from the Airport to Downtown Taipei. Be sure to wait for the express train. There's a LOT of stops otherwise.

The gate to the train is downstairs. by the 7-11 in the airport. Just follow the signs. It's easy to get to even if you've got a lot of luggage. Super fast, super clean, probably faster than driving yourself.

The last stop is a few blocks from Taipei Main Train Station. Plenty of bus, train, and MRT connections there. Taxi rides from there to most hotels will also be cheap, like $5.
