Cab company Uber has announced that starting from Thursday at 9am "Mallorcans and visitors will have at their disposal the Uber Taxi services", including minibus-type vans which can take up to six people. There are 40 vehicles involved in the first phase.

The platform incorporated this service for the first time in 2019 in Madrid, followed by Malaga, Barcelona and Valencia in 2021, making Mallorca the fourth Spanish location to have cabs on the Uber app. In Spain, a total of 4,000 cabs already work with Uber, 3,000 of them in Madrid.
