Uber has announced that it will suspend its activities in Colombia as of February 1, after responding to a lawsuit for unfair competition and irregular operation.
“In compliance with the process sent by the Superintendence of Industry and Commerce (SIC), as of 12:00 am on February 1, 2020, Uber will stop working in Colombia,” the platform announced in an official statement.
Uber’s operation as a digital application is permitted by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology, even though the provision of the service is illegal.
In Colombia, the American company has more than 88,000 drivers in several cities.
In some cities around the world, Uber no longer operates as a result of complaints. The American company does not offer services in Catalonia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Denmark and northern Australia.
