The EU Court recognises Uber as a legitimate transport service

By in

Uber has officially been recognised as a transport service and will be regulated as a normal taxi service in all EU countries.

Uber literally transformed the taxi industry around the world after its launch in 2011. Now Uber works in more than 600 cities around the world.

During the trial, Uber defended its position that the company functions as an online service and an intermediary between drivers and customers, so the company must fall under the softer EU rules governing online services.
