New law makes Uber app illegal in Romania

Romania’s President Klaus Iohannis signed on June 3 the law that regulates taxi and car rental services.

The new law deems illegal to transport people for a fee without holding a valid taxi authorization. The main consequence of this law is that it makes the Uber ride-sharing app illegal, according to Romanian media.

Uber representatives said that the new law didn't affect the company's operations.

The smartphone application connects riders with drivers looking to share the costs of their cars. Uber entered the Romanian market in February.
