Uber wins appeal, can continue operating in London

by admin



Uber’s London headquarters can breathe a sigh of relief. 

According to BBC News, Uber has won an appeal against Transport for London (TfL), which denied Uber the right to operate in London due to safety concerns. 

The Westminster Magistrates’ Court described Uber as a “fit and proper” operator, despite its failings in the past. 

The back and forth between Uber and TfL has been going on for three years, with Uber losing its license in 2017, then getting a 15-month extension in 2018, then losing its license in late 2019 again. 

Uber immediately appealed that last decision, calling it “wrong.” 

“Over the last 2 years we have fundamentally changed how we operate in London,” Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said at the time. 

There are about 45,000 Uber drivers working in London, according to BBC News. 

The London court will decide on the length of the new license granted to Uber, as well as any conditions imposed on the raid-hailing service.
