A preliminary injunction against Uber operating in Brno has been overturned by the Supreme Court in Olomouc, Czech Television reported on Tuesday, quoting a court official. A Brno court had ruled that Uber could not provide services in the city as long as its drivers do not possess a taxi permit. It also said its cars must be marked as taxis and feature a taximeter. There have also been legal challenges to Uber – which describes its services as car-pooling – in Prague. Uber began operations in the capital in 2014 and launched in Brno in February of this year.
