New York City Suspends Five Out Of Six Uber Bases

New York City has temporarily banned some of Uber’s bases there, but it shouldn’t affect service, says the company.

Five of the six bases run by the taxi service were suspended by the city’s taxi and limousine tribunal after Uber refused to hand over ride records.

The decision was handed down on Tuesday.

One base is still open, so operations there may continue in spite of the ban.

An Uber spokesperson told Business Insider that operations would not be affected by the ban.

Here’s what Uber had to say about the TLC’s decision:

Uber continues to operate legally in New York City, with tens of thousands of partner drivers and hundreds of thousands of riders relying on the Uber platform for economic opportunity and safe, reliable rides. We are continuing a dialogue with the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission on these issues.
