The European Union’s highest court Wednesday declared that Uber was a transportation business, not just a tech platform that connected drivers with riders. The ruling will force Uber to comply with the bloc’s transportation rules. It is also likely to restrict the company from expanding services that allowed nonprofessional drivers to offer rides to clients.
"Uber Is a Taxi Service, European Court Rules, in Major Setback for Firm" is from the December 20, 2017 Business section of The New York Times. It was written by Liz Alderman and narrated by Archie Montgomery.
