Five out of the six New York City bases belonging to the ride-sharing service Uber were suspended on Tuesday, after a ruling stated that the service failed to comply with data requests from the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC).

CNET reported that the TLC is a “division in the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings,” whose ruling stated that Uber must suspend five out of its six bases in New York City “until the company provides the data and each base pays a $200 fine,” leaving the one base that provided data “in operation and handling all rider requests.

According to the New York Business Journal, “Lyft and other competitors did not object to the request.”

Business Insider reported that the requests were under a new rule from the TLC, which states that a Licensee “must truthfully answer all questions and comply with all communications, directives, and summonses from the Commission or its representative.

The commission requested that Uber hand over “the date of trip, time of trip, pick up location, and license numbers” from April to mid-September of 2014.

The New York Business Journal reported Uber “fought the request on constitutional grounds,” claiming that the commission was “demanding trade secrets, information that could harm its competitive position and possibly violate drivers’ privacy.”

This is not the first time Uber has been met with challenges over the last year. In addition to being criticized for being an alternative to tradition taxi services, Uber has received criticism from major businesses, and has had its drivers threatened to “stop driving or face arrest” in states such as AlabamaTennessee, and Virginia.

Despite the fact that the company is down to just one base in New York City, Uber’s spokeswoman Natalia Montalvo released a statement saying that Uber is still in operation, and continues to provide service to its customers:

Uber continues to operate legally in New York City, with tens of thousands of partner drivers and hundreds of thousands of riders relying on the Uber platform for economic opportunity and safe, reliable rides. We are continuing a dialogue with the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission on these issues.”
