Tel Aviv court bans Uber's ride-sharing operation in Israel

Uber is partially banned in Tel Aviv

After several months during which Uber attempted to break into the Israeli market, the Tel Aviv District Court ruled that the discounted transportation company must terminate its services in Israel under its current format.

It is expected that both drivers and riders will decide to abandon the beleaguered company in a hurry if they decide Uber can't be trusted to keep their personal information secure.

Tens of thousands of people have reportedly used the service in Israel since its launch, however an anonymous "source at the Transportation Ministry" declared that anyone "boarding an Uber auto is a criminal - both driver and passenger".

The injunction against the Uber car-pooling app followed complaints by Israel's Transportation Ministry, Taxi Driver Union and a rival ride-hailing company about the USA company's use of drivers who lacked proper business licenses and insurance. "We're committed to continued cooperation with the authorities, to examine how technology can provide reliable, cost-effective and safe transportation solutions".

Founded in 2009, Uber offers services in more than 600 cities worldwide and earned around $6.5 billion in revenues. It has faced resistance from traditional taxi operators and regulators.

Reports have suggested that the block on Uber and the position taken by Ministry of Transport and Road Safety are politically influenced, including by a rift between the head of the ministry Israel Katz and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

It began its nighttime services in the same area in 2016, though it operated with numerous restrictions, according to Israeli media.
