Uber willing to make concessions to reverse London licence decision

Posted September 25, 2017

Meanwhile, Tom Elvidge, the general manager of Uber in London, said: "We're always willing to talk to Transport for London and the mayor".

"We haven't been asked to make any changes", he added. "I know that Uber has become a popular service for many Londoners - but it would be wrong for TfL to license Uber if there was any way this could pose a threat to Londoners' safety", Khan said.

Transport for London (TfL), the city's transportation authority, cited Greyball, among other offenses, when it declined to renew Uber's license, saying the company's "approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications".

United States taxi firm Uber is willing to make concessions as it seeks to reverse a decision by London authorities not to renew its licence in the city, which represents a potentially big blow for the fast-growing company. It could have profound negative consequences for the 40,000 drivers who depend on Uber for work and the 3.5 million Londoners who rely on Uber to get around.

The company claim that "Transport for London and their chairman the Mayor have given in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice".

They covered the allegations that Uber's drivers are not properly background-checked and are responsible for assaulting passengers.

The recent London ban came as a big blow to Uber which operates in 633 cities worldwide.

"The fact that Uber is so mature and broadly used in London means it's very unlikely that it will be permanently banned there - the political fallout would just be too great".

The victorious Lobby team hit the net so many times that they failed to keep track of who scored all their goals. It flagged up Uber's approach to how medical certificates were obtained - for example, drivers using an online GP service via video rather than having a check in person as the regulations insist.

The battle to reverse the licence ruling overlaps Uber's efforts to appeal against a ruling regarding the employment status of its drivers, which will be heard at the employment appeals tribunal this week.

Mr McCluskey told Peston on Sunday he had never taken an Uber and added: "I'm one of these people that believes that Uber is part of this disgusting, race-to-the-bottom, culture that has developed in this country".

In London, the government transport regulator announced that Uber's license to operate a taxi service was up at the end of the month and would not be renewed.
