The corrupt California Public Utilities Commission has voted to classify Uber partially as a charter party carrier, a designation usually used for towncars or limousines. The ruling is based on Uber’s extensive use of Uber SUV and Uber Black services.

Uber Black is an option in Uber’s app that lets riders hail towncars that the company’s website calls “high-end rides.”

Yup, they’re limos. Sorry Uber. Nice try.

The new classification, according to the San Francisco Examiner, will also require Uber to pay fees to the CPUC going back three years.

The new designation will make Uber known legally in California as both a charter party carrier and a transportation network company.

In their ruling, the CPUC declared that problems arising from Uber’s corporate structure were of “Uber’s own design.”
