Uber said on Monday that it is no longer banned in Berlin – for now at least. As happened in Hamburg, the company has lodged an appeal against the city’s ban, meaning the prohibition is suspended until the case is resolved. I would say that means Uber can resume services after a break of several days, but in fact the company continued operating while the ban was in force, putting itself and its drivers at risk of hefty fines. Luckily, Uber told me, no such fines were levied.
