Qatar limo companies working illegally with Uber, Careem put on notice

-

Qatar’s Ministry of Transport and Communications has given taxi and limousine companies that use online apps to find passengers 30 days to properly register with the government or risk legal action, according to a public notice.

It’s not clear if the ministry is targeting Uber and Careem – both of which are named in the notice – themselves, or the local limo and taxi companies that supply it with cars and drivers. It’s the latest local blow to Uber, which is still engaged in a labor dispute with drivers in Qatar. When contacted by Doha News, Uber declined comment and Careem said it’s “working closely with relevant authorities.”
