Uber submits appeal against London regulator’s ban

December 2019

Uber has appealed against Transport for London’s (TfL) decision to strip its operating license to work in the UK’s capital.

The taxi app was effectively banned by the regulator in November, pending appeal, over a series of breaches that put passenger safety at risk.

TfL said it identified “a pattern of failures” by the firm behind the app which led it to conclude that it “is not fit and proper at this time”.

At the time, Uber described the decision as “extraordinary and wrong”.

The company had previously been denied a license in 2017 before it had been restored on a probationary basis by a judge.

Uber’s head for northern and eastern Europe, Jamie Heywood, said: “We are committed to Londoners and are working closely with TfL to address their concerns and requests, as we have since 2017.”

TfL declined to comment.
