Uber has suspended Uber Pop in Spain, the company confirmed today, after it received confirmation of a court ruling that bans its ride-sharing service in the country.

Uber Pop, a European version of Uber X that uses everyday vehicles and provides bill-splitting options for passengers, arrived in Spain in April, and it has been under pressure for months in the country and in a number of other markets in Europe in recent times.

France will outlaw the service from January 1, and it has been banned in The Netherlands and Belgian capital Brussels too.

Uber said it is “temporarily suspending” the service in Spain after it receiving notice of an injunction against it. A court upheld a complaint from the Association Madrileña Del Taxi made earlier this month.
