Cambridge City Council deciding whether or not to renew Uber's licence

Cambridge's Taxi Licensing Committee will meet on Monday to discuss the renewal of ride-hailing firm Uber's license, which expires at the end of December 2017. Since being deemed "not fit and proper" to hold an operators license by TfL in London, Uber have been under the microscope from a number of licensing authorities, and Cambridge is up next. As reported in the Cambridge news , following TfL's decision, a spokesperson for Cambridge City Council said: "We will look closely at the detail of TfL's decision and the likely appeal Uber has indicated it will lodge against that decision before considering Uber's operating licence in Cambridge, and whether that license should be renewed or not" A report that is due to go before the committee on December 18 reads: "Since November 2016, we have received six complaints regarding Uber as an operator. Five of these were received on the 15th and 16th November 2016, which was when Uber vehicles first appeared in Cambridge. The complaints related to how the bookings were made. "Investigations carried out by the Licensing enforcement officers concluded Uber was acting correctly " Panther Taxis Ltd, along with Cambridge City Licensed Taxis and Cambridge Hackney & Private Hire, have also submitted letters objecting the renewal of Uber Britannia's licence.
