A court has banned the ride-sharing service Uber from operating in Brno.
The court accepted Brno’s complaints, namely that Uber drivers have not passed required tests and their cars are not equipped with taximeters. The injunction will be binding only when a Dutch translation is delivered to Uber, the court said. The company operates in the Czech Republic through a Dutch subsidiary.
Uber, which has been operating in Brno since Feb. 1, can yet appeal the ruling.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Brno City Hall said it is not against mobile applications and new taxi services but they have to be provided in line with the law.
