Uber to end services in Denmark after less than three years

The company is appealing against the ruling, in which the tribunal dismissed as "faintly ridiculous" the idea that Uber was "a mosaic of 30,000 small businesses linked by a common "platform".

The party's spokesperson for transport Joachim B. Olsen echoed Olesen's sentiments.

The company will keep a software development office that's based in Denmark, and also stated that it will "allocate resources" to help the drivers who are losing a full- or part-time source of income in just a few weeks.

In December, Danish prosecutors charged Uber's European division with assisting two drivers in violating taxi laws.
