Uber today welcomed the news that the presiding judge of the Hamburg Administrative Court today informed the parties that the regulator’s ban on Uber was preliminarily suspended until further notice from the court. It said Uber can continue its business in Hamburg and elsewhere in Germany until further notice.

Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty said: “This is good news for the great people of Hamburg and the many thousands of German citizens already benefitting from Uber’s great services. We’re delighted to continue to bring uberPOP, a fresh and new ride-sharing service to Hamburg and other cities in Germany, as we challenge the old policies that were written before the smartphone was even invented. Today’s news supports freedom of choice and progress, as Uber seeks to bring better, safer and cheaper transport options to everyone.”
