    Italy Bids Farewell to Uber

    Italy Bids Farewell to Uber

    Italy Bids Farewell to Uber

    Last month, we covered Uber's decision to withdraw its services from Denmark, following the controversial ride-share company's refusal to adhere to new Danish legislation.

    Recently, the ever-growing list of Uber's problems in Europe has been added to once again, with a court sitting in Rome banning Uber from Italy altogether. 

    The Italian court responded to a legal complaint made by Italy's foremost taxi unions, protesting against a legal loophole Uber drivers used to gain an unfair advantage over traditional hire-cars, where Uber drivers would purchase taxi licenses in smaller towns  — where the licenses' costs are much cheaper  — and then use them to work in Italy's larger cities.

    A spokesperson for Uber's Italian division stated that the company were 'shocked' by the outcome of hearing and would duly appeal the court's decision. 

    'Thousands of professional, licensed drivers use the Uber app to make money,' they said, 'and provide reliable transportation at the push of a button.'

    Italian taxi drivers have consistently organised against Uber's Italian services, with recent months seeing numerous strikes take place. 

    Decreeing Uber's ride-share app illegal, the court also prohibited Uber from using any form of promotion to advertise their services and set a deadline of just ten days for the company to withdraw from the country completely. 

    For more updates on Uber as they come in, be sure to keep checking in with the Taxi Centre blog, where we'll continue to follow the latest and biggest events in taxi news.
