Uber obtains one year operator license renewal in Birmingham

Uber has been granted a one year renewal to their operator license by Birmingham City Council.

A "behind closed doors" meeting was held by the licensing sub committee in January, where there was a unanimous agreement for Uber to continue operating until January 31, 2020. 

Their operator's license will then be reviewed again after that date.

It was reported in Birmingham Live that the minicab giant, who have been operating in the city since 2015, had submitted statistics via a booklet, claiming to have over 1,000 Birmingham licensed drivers on their platform, and have carried out more than  15 million trips, with an average 4 minute waiting time.

Uber have expressed a willingness to work with West Midlands Police and the City Council regarding safety issues and enforcement.

They have also stated that they are willing to make transport data available to assist in infrastructure planning decisions in the city.
