Is there Uber in Barcelona, Spain?

Uber has been banned for a few years now in Barcelona to help protect the existing taxi fleet and generally encourage visitors to use public transport. We think it's best to get around the city on foot but if you need powered transport for any reason here are the 6 best ways to get around Barcelona when you don’t want to walk.
