SANTA MONICA, Calif. — A technology company that creates software for users to get rides with black vehicles through their cell phones and other Internet-capable devices was issued a citation Thursday for operating in the city without a business license.

Uber, which allows people to arrange and pay for rides using a phone application, text message or through the web, has multiple offices in Santa Monica, including a temporary location on the 1600 block of Fifth Street.
