Uber appeals decision to cancel its London license


The Financial Times reports that an Uber representative stated the appeal had been submitted while "constructive discussions" with TfL continue.

Uber has launched its appeal against Transport for London's decision to deny it a new operating licence in the capital.

Uber's appeal is expected to take place on December 11.

Uber was required to begin its appeal by Friday or it would not be allowed to continue operating in London. "As our new CEO has said, we are determined to make things right".

The shooting occurred just before 12:30 a.m., as the officer exchanged gunfire with a suspect at Cindy Place Apartments. Several officers returned fire and the suspect was hit and brought to a hospital and arrested, authorities said.

"The courts now will consider the appeal from Uber and of course TfL will defend the decision they made", he said (via Reuters).

Uber, which can continue to operate during its appeal, was banned by Transport for London on September 22 over safety concerns and the company's attempts to avoid regulation.

New global Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi met TfL Commissioner Mike Brown for talks earlier this month, which both sides said were "constructive" as the $70-billion firm tries to fix its relationship with the regulator.

The talks were described by both sides as "constructive".

TfL cited concerns including Uber's approach to reporting criminal offences, its treatment of drivers, how it conducted medical and criminal checks on drivers, and whether software employed to evade regulation was being used in London.

The market is Uber's most important in Europe, where it claims to have some 3.5 million users and around 40,000 drivers.

Mr Khosrowshahi took over at Uber in August after predecessor Travis Kalanick resigned following a series of scandals.

Following the ruling, Uber's CEO Dara Khosrowshahi apologised to Londoners on behalf of the company.
