Uber London Loses License To Operate

Quebec renews — but modifies — Uber pilot project

Tom Elvidge told the Sunday Times that while the company hasn't "been asked to make any changes, we'd like to know what we can do". The ban will add to the cost of living in what is already the UK's most expensive city Speaking to TNS about Uber, University of London student Ben Hadfield said: "I use Uber all the time, because they're so much cheaper than black cabs in London".

After Transport for London (TfL) announced that they will not renew Uber's license to operate in the London, Londoners jumped into action.

The agency specifically called out Uber's approach to reporting crime, its approach to background checks, and its use of Greyball, software that allowed it to circumvent detection by governments.

Although the firm's current license expires on the last day of this month, it has a period of 21 days to appeal and Uber cars shall continue to remain on the city's streets until then.

"To defend the source of livelihood for 40 thousand drivers and consumer choice of millions of Londoners, sign the petition demanding to cancel the decision to ban Uber in London", - stated in the text of the proclamation.

Sadiq Khan avoided any "Uber for Khan" moments despite suffering a 6-0 defeat alongside Labour colleagues in the politicians' annual conference football match against Westminster journalists. The company and TfL should work together, and legal battles notwithstanding, to devise reforms that would make Uber compliant. In 2016, The Licensed Taxi Drivers Association blamed private vehicle hire companies like Uber for causing " unsustainable congestion", costing London £5.4 billion a year. "TfL must also be satisfied that an operator is fit and proper to hold a license".

While Uber doesn't have that much of a choice if it wants to return to such an important market (TfL has the upper hand here), it's notable that Uber is changing its tone more quickly than it has in the past.

London taxi cabs parked in protest against Uber.

But taxi companies and taxi trade organisations in London cheered the decision.

"They have a lot more scrutiny on them now", said Reed Galen, a political consultant who worked with Uber on a campaign in Austin. While the ride-hailing app is targeting 1 million supporters, Khan defended his position that while he supports innovative businesses, all companies must adhere to high standards of safety and security.

Uber's chief executive, Dara Khosrowshahi, wrote to staff confirming that the company would appeal against the ruling. Less than a year ago, a British tribunal decided that Uber could never again regard its drivers as independently employed temporary workers and would need to meet harder work measures, including offering occasion pay and annuities.
