Uber Returns to Finland After Change to Transport Laws
Finland’s move overhauls what was previously a strictly regulated transport market and supports new business models, including digitization and new technologies, the government’s transport ministry says on its website. Uber drivers in the country had been facing possible criminal prosecution and hefty fines as part of a police crackdown against drivers who lack the required taxi permits. The move comes as part of efforts by the company’s new chief executive, Dara Khosrowshahi, to repair relationships with local regulators and reverse what has been an unprecedented time of turmoil.
