Uber ride-sharing service hit by Brussels court ban

Loek Essers | April 16, 2014
A Brussels court has banned Uber from operating its ride hailing service in the city because its drivers don't have a taxi license, local media reported Tuesday. If it flouts the ban, Uber must pay a penalty of €10,000 (US$13,800) per violation.

After the impoundments, UberPop was made available for free for one week in Brussels, while the company called on the authorities to start a public dialogue and "not play games."

Uber is rolling out its UberPop services in several European cities, including Paris, Berlin and Barcelona. Uber has experienced resistance from traditional taxi drivers in Paris and in other cities.
