EXPANSION CONTINUES: Uber granted licence to operate in Dundee

Uber has been granted a licence to operate in Dundee, marking its entry into the city’s private hire car market. This expansion sees Uber setting up shop in its fourth Scottish city, joining Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen.

The green light came from Dundee City Council, with Uber’s office set to be located at the Flour Mill complex on Commercial Street. Despite concerns from local taxi drivers, the council’s licensing committee saw “no legal grounds” to deny the application.

This move follows Uber's recent licence approvals in Aberdeen and Ipswich and aligns with the company’s UK growth strategy. Uber is responding to the increasing demand for ride-hailing services and expanding its reach across the country.

This year, the company has now secured licences in cities like Hull, Swansea, and Stockton-on-Tees, and has seen its driver numbers surge by over 70% since 2021, with over 100,000 drivers nationwide.

Dundee now joins a growing list of UK cities where Uber aims to strengthen its presence, signalling a significant shift in the local taxi industry.
