Uber to Suspend Hungary Operations After New Laws Impose Blocks

  • Company has nearly 1,200 drivers operating across the country
  • Regional manager for startup says suspension may be temporary

Uber Technologies Inc. will suspend its ride-hailing services in Hungary from July 24 following a government decision to pass a bill that allows authorities to block access to the mobile application and fine media promoting it.

San Francisco-based Uber has previously said its Hungarian drivers are licensed and tax compliant.
