Uber suspends UberX service in Greece

Uber on Thursday announced it was suspending one of the two services offered in the Greek market, UberX, starting Tuesday, 10 April.

The company offers the UberX service (using professional drivers) and UberTaxi (using professional taxi drivers). In an announcement, Uber cited a recent amendment in the Greek legislation on transport services as the reason behind this decision and noted it would re-examine its position in light of the new facts in the market.

Uber drivers held a brief protest at the Transport Ministry on Thursday, following the company’s decision.
