Courts block Uber virtual taxi website in Portugal

The bitter wrangle that sees ANTRAL, Portugal’s taxi drivers’ association, hounding its “unrestricted competitor” Uber from operating in Lisbon and Porto has taken a new turn this week with a court order forcing telecommunications operators to pull Uber’s website in Portugal forthwith. For the time being, anyone with an Uber App can still access the customer-friendly service, but the website no longer exists.
