Uber today welcomed the news that the presiding judge of the Berlin Administrative Court today has suspended the regulator’s ban on Uber until further notice. It said Uber can continue its business in Berlin until further notice and follows a similar suspension granted recently in the city of Hamburg.
Fabien Nestmann, GM for Germany welcomed the news:
“This is good news for the great people of Berlin and the thousands of German citizens already benefitting from Uber’s great services. We’re delighted to continue to bring our fresh and new ride-sharing service UberPOP plus our licensed limo service, UberBlack to Berlin and other cities in Germany, as we challenge the old policies that were written before the smartphone was even invented. Uber’s number one priority is safety and we would like to underline that every driver on the Uber platform is insured.
Today’s news supports freedom of choice and progress, as Uber seeks to bring better, safer and cheaper transport options to everyone.”
