Ridesharing business Uber is in 100 cities around the world, and has therefore launched an Uber 100 campaign featuring maps of where riders in each city take Uber.

Baltimore’s map of Uber rides taken since the service started in January 2013 is pictured above.

As Technical.ly Baltimore has reported, the startup has an uncertain future in the city. A prolonged legal battle between Uber and the Maryland Public Service Commission via the Public Utility Law Judge Division has centered around whether Uber needs to file for common carrier status — as all taxi companies do — to continue operating in the state of Maryland.

Uber disputes the notion, arguing it doesn’t trade rides for remuneration. But after a bill that would’ve exempted Uber (and its ridesharing counterpart Lyft) from having to file for common carrier status failed to pass the Maryland General Assembly, it appears the question of Uber’s legality in Maryland, and Baltimore, remains unsettled.
