    Uber in Germany acts as a middle man only. They tried to do the "anybody with a car can drive" thing and failed (NYT Jan 2016). And in the two cities they're still servicing (Munich and Berlin), they basically just connect the passenger with either a licensed "beige" taxi, or with a professional Livery service (they don't have to be beige, but they still have certain rules about their cars and training). Lyft doesn't operate there at all.
