Ride-hailing company Uber says it has suspended its services in the Spanish city of Barcelona because of new rules.
This agreement was made after the Catalan government demanded a command of a 15-minute delay before passengers could be picked up.
Uber has been the aim of protests by taxi drivers in Barcelona who say their business are being sabotaged.
Uber said the new restrictions left it with “no choice” but to halt its services “while they assess their future in Barcelona”.
In July last year, Spanish taxi drivers began public demonstrations in Barcelona and Madrid.
The drivers are still on strike in the Spanish capital, but Madrid authorities have said they will not accept the same restrictions as in Barcelona.
Uber has fallen victim of restrictions in many parts of the world at different times.
In the UK, Transport for London denied them of its license in late 2017, saying it was not a “fit and proper” operator.
It was then awarded a short-term 15-month license for London in June last year, with London mayor Sadiq Khan saying the firm had been “put on probation”.
