France's highest court on Tuesday confirmed a ban on controversial ride-sharing service UberPOP, dismissing a constitutional appeal by the US company.
The constitutional council said the ban was in line with laws against "an organised system that puts clients in touch with people" offering taxi services, but which are not part of an official transport company.
