On the 13th of June, the Parliament of Hungary voted about the future of the “new generation” of public transportation. The bill, approved with 119 votes in favour, 61 against and 3 abstentions, allows Hungary’s media authority to block the websites of companies that offer illegal taxi services for a period of up to 365 days.
Under the bill, the transport authority can order that a website promoting such services be blocked if the company behind it continues to operate dispatch services even after having been fined by the transport authority for failing to comply with industry regulations. Basically, this kind of shutting down means the end of the possibilities of Uber’s running.
In spite of this, Uber continues to campaign for popularity with videos posted on Facebook.
