After courting controversy in India and across the U.S., ride-sharing app Uber has now fallen foul of authorities in Taiwan and the Chinese city of Chongqing, over allegations that drivers are not appropriately licensed.
Officials in Chongqing, home to more than 30 million people, said in a statement Monday that Uber drivers operating without commercial licenses amounts to “illegal behavior,” reports Reuters.
The Taiwanese Transport Ministry is likewise mulling whether to shut down Uber’s website and apps.
The news comes less than a week after Uber won investment from Chinese web juggernaut Baidu, the nation’s leading search engine.
