Toronto Asks Court to Shut Down Uber’s Operations

Updated on

Toronto is asking a court to order the mobile car-booking service Uber Technologies Inc. to shut down in North America’s fourth-largest city.

Uber has been operating in Toronto since 2012 without a proper license, the city of Toronto said yesterday in a statement on its website. The notice cited concerns about Uber’s operations including a lack of driver training and vehicle inspections, inadequate insurance and increased traffic from the additional cars on the road.
