EU court says Uber is taxi service, can be regulated

EU court says Uber is taxi service, can be regulatedThe European Union’s top court ruled on Wednesday that Uber is an ordinary transport service and not just a ride-hailing app, meaning that countries can regulate it. “The service provided by Uber connecting individuals with non-professional drivers is covered by services in the field of transport,” the European Court of Justice said in a case brought by a Spanish taxi drivers’ association. The case is yet another thorn in the side for scandal-rocked Uber, which has drawn the fury of local taxi drivers and officials for flouting local regulations.
