Uber has been banned in Italy!

Uber’s recent problems don’t seem to be ending at all. An Italian court has banned Uber in Italy, yes all of Italy! They’ve ordered blockage of Uber apps thus effectively banning Uber in Italy. The court ruled that Uber cannot provide its Black, Lux, Suv, X , XL, Select and Van services nor promote or advertise them in all of Italy.

This ruling was a result of the suit files against Uber by Italy’s major taxi associations.Uber Italy was obviously shocked with the ruling and will definitely be planning to appeal it.

I am not sure of Uber’s numbers in Italy but surely this is going to cause major inconvenience to at least some people including business travelers and tourists.

I’d love to hear opinon of people who are going to be affected by this ruling.
