Uber declared illegal in Brussels

3 Jan 2019


As Uber navigates its way around the sea of lawsuits across the globe, a court in the Belgian capital, Brussels has declared Uber illegal. 


The ruling, which has come from a trade tribunal in the city according to a report in Fleet Europe means that only drivers who have obtained a taxi license for the Brussels area, and have vehicles which have a rooftop illumination, are legally allowed to carry fare paying passengers in the area.


The court has decreed that this legal definition must also apply to drivers operating on the Uber platform.


It has also been reported that Uber could be subject to a €10,000 fine for every illegal journey made in the Brussels Region.


It is believed that Brussels Mobility Minister Pascal Smet is assessing the tribunals judgment.


There has been no comment from Uber at this time.
