Uber will be licensed as a taxi company in Germany
Uber will license its main transport services, UberX, as a taxi business in Germany.
The decision comes after lengthy litigation on the legality of the service. Representatives of Uber said that in order to continue operations, the company has no choice but to pay the necessary license fees. This will create a new service that will probably keep the name UberX. All drivers working in the country, will be licensed as taxi companies and their working relations with Uber will be legalized. Still we don’t know whether this decision will lead to a spike in prices. Taxi service Uber in Germany is expected this summer.
