Uber suspends operations in Vienna after unfavorable judgment

Uber was forced to temporarily suspend its activities in the Austrian capital after an unfavorable verdict in court. But the company ensures that this is only part of the discount.

The bad news is accumulating for Uber in Europe: after the suspension of its service in Athens and Bratislava , its difficulties in maintaining its activities in London and the judgment of the Court of Justice of the Union to allow regulators to consider the society as a regulation of transport companies , and not of services, it is from Austria that a new trap has come.

FILING COMPLAINT

The US company specializing in bringing individuals into contact with drivers offering a transport service has been banned from offering UberX, UberBlack and UberVan services in Vienna, the Austrian capital, through justice. A ban that the group however intends to fight, she said in a statement taken by AFP .

”  We are working hard to change our practices to be able to offer our services again in a few days,  ” she says. Uber was faced with a lawsuit filed in the Vienna Commercial Court by a local taxi company that believes the US group’s offer constitutes unfair competition.
