The Uber car service app has been launched in Prague, representatives of the US startup firm told reporters on Wednesday. The application, which allows its users to order private-hire cars as an alternative to taxi services, comes to Prague as the first city in central and eastern Europe, the company said. The number of participating drivers has not been released. Uber’s arrival in several European cities sparked protests by local taxi drivers who complained of unfair competition.
