MOSCOW, June 24 (RAPSI) – The Moscow Commercial Court will hear an application lodged by the Astrakhan transport company Transline seeking to ban BlaBlaCar service in Russia on August 1, according to court records.

This is not the first attempt to shut down the service in Russia.

In December 2017, a court in Krasnodar reversed a lower court’s ruling declaring information published on the website of BlaBlaCar banned.

BlaBlaCar, one of the largest online ride-sharing services in the world, was founded in 2006.
