Germany bans Uber services via rental cars

by Editorial Team

FRANKFURT — A German court has banned Uber services in Germany, arguing the US ride-hailing company lacks a necessary license to offer passenger transport services using rental cars.

The verdict is effective immediately, but can be appealed, the Frankfurt regional court said in a statement Thursday.

The court in 2015 forbade Uber from matching up drivers using their own cars with ride hailers.

Uber’s service, which lets customers hail rides carried out in rented cars, is also illegal as it violated competition rules, the court said.

Uber was not immediately available for comment.
