Uber declared illegal in Portugal

 

The decision was apparently reached at the end of last month, but was only made public last night.

 

The ruling follows a claim by national transport company ANTRAL demanding Uber is declared illegal and calling for compensation of 15 million euros.

 

Uber have however said they are now considering additional legal action, such as lodging an appeal with the Supreme Court. Uber says it currently employs three thousand drivers in Portugal.

Here we go again!
Hope UBER wins their case. IT is such a pleasant experience to ride with UBER and to know that you're not being ripped off, esp. for a foreigner.
My experience with taxi drivers in Lisbon has not been very good and unless they change their attitude towards their customers, UBER is the way of the future.
