You may be able to get into St. Bernard Parish in an Uber vehicle, but you can't get out.

The ride-sharing service has ceased operations in the parish after council members voted in favor of an ordinance regulating such operations.

Companies like Uber now have to pay the parish a 50-cent fee per ride and fork over $2,500 for an annual permit.

Uber's decision means that while you might get one of its drivers to transport you into the parish, you can't "app" an Uber ride in or out of the parish.
