Uber’s International Drive Runs into Headwinds in Turkey

Uber Technologies (UBER) last month suspended its luxury ride-hailing service known as UberXL in Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city. UberXL uses larger vans instead of small cars to transport groups of passengers. Uber said that halting its UberXL service in Istanbul was a difficult decision, but declined to disclose the reason behind it.
