A Jordanian court ruled today to ban ride-hailing app Careerm from operating in the Kingdom, The Jordan Times reports.

The ruling blocks Careem’s app on all app stores, and bans drivers and riders from accessing the app on their phones. Careem may resume operations in the country when it obtains the appropriate licenses, according to the news outlet.

The suit against Careem was filed on behalf of several yellow taxicab offices. A lawyer representing the taxi companies said that there are around 17,000 cabs currently in Jordan.
