Uber banned in Berlin on passenger safety grounds

15 August 2014

Uber faces a ban in Berlin after the city government ruled the app-enabled taxi service could prove unsafe for passengers.

The city council decided Uber contravenes passenger safety rules by using “‘unverified drivers in unlicensed vehicles and passengers could be uninsured in the event of an accident”‘

The ban, issued this week, has yet to come into force pending a response from Uber.

Berlin’s move follows a decision by authorities in Hamburg, Germany’s second-biggest city, to ban the use of Uber – but for a different reason.
