Uber (car) in Osaka 2021/8/13 16:35
Are there any Osaka Uber drivers on this forum or someone who has used Uber from Kansai Airport to downtown Osaka during Covid restrictions? Is Uber considered a "public" transportation for newly arriving people to Osaka?

Whatever company, public transportation vehicles are given green coloured number plate, which the number is shown in white. If the vehicles which offer transportation service have a white/yellow/brack plate, they are illegal and definitely not public transportation. I hope it helps.
