LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- For the first time since the Uber debate came to Little Rock, executives with the ride sharing startup were in town presenting to the city's board of directors.

"The residents and visitors have spoken very loud and clear that they would like Uber to be brought to Little Rock," said Uber Senior Public Policy Associate Dave Barmore. "I'm encouraged to be talking with you to see how we can make that happen."

Barmore told directors Uber is not a taxi service, but rather a technology startup matching ride seekers with nearby drivers looking to make some extra cash. "There is a strict vetting process in place to make sure that these drivers are safe and this process includes a nationally approved background check vendor," he added. "A lot of them are just residents looking to make some extra money on the weekend."
