The Department for Transport meets ‘regularly’ with Uber and other taxi and private hire vehicle stakeholders confirms transport minister.


In a recent House of Commons written question, Andrea Jenkyns, the Conservative MP for Morley and Outwood, raised a query directed at the Secretary of State for Transport. Her question concerned the nature and frequency of discussions held with Uber regarding passenger safety within the taxi and private hire sectors.

Responding to this, Guy Opperman, Minister at the Department for Transport (DfT), confirmed that the DfT maintains regular communication with various stakeholders in the taxi and private hire industry, including Uber. These discussions cover a broad spectrum of issues, with passenger safety being a priority.


Opperman added that details about these ministerial meetings are transparent and accessible to the public. Information is published quarterly on the Government’s official site.


Opperman disclosed his attendance at a Parliamentary reception hosted by Uber in December 2023.

Opperman said: “Department for Transport (DfT) Ministers regularly meet with taxi and private hire vehicle stakeholders, including Uber, to discuss a range of issues.


“Information on ministerial meetings is published quarterly at www.gov.uk/government/collections/dft-ministerial-gifts-hospitality-travel-and-meetings.
