Uber drivers and riders throughout the country tweeted out complaints Thursday that Uber service was down. Drivers trying to pick up or drop off fares were unable to log into the app, tweets from several accounts claimed. The tweets said Uber users without access were in cities including Las Vegas, Atlanta, Washington DC and New York City. Some accounts said Uber Eats, the company’s food delivery service, was down, too.

Uber didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The company’s user support account on Twitter feverishly tweeted out individual replies to the complaints, saying that the issue with the app was now resolved.

The outage comes as Uber is in its fourth day of trial in a civil lawsuit that claims the company is using stolen trade secrets to develop autonomous vehicles, and less than two months after the company revealed it had covered up an incident in 2016 in which hackers had stolen user information.

During Thursday’s apparent Uber outage, one Twitter user posted a photo of the error message displayed by the Uber app.
