Final call for London taxi drivers to join £250m Uber Litigation



The deadline for London taxi drivers wishing to join over 10,500 cabbies already registered for a group action claiming losses against ridehail giants Uber is 5pm 31 May 2024.


The basis of the claim is unlawful means conspiracy arising out of actions taken by Uber to obtain, improperly, a Private Hire Vehicle Licence, as granted to them by Transport for London (TfL), pursuant to the terms of the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1988.

The Claimants will allege that Uber's operating system did not comply with the requirements of the Act; that Uber knew this at all material times; and that in order to obtain its licence Uber deliberately misled TfL as to how that operating system worked.


The claimants, represented in the Commercial Court filings earlier this month, numbered 10,887, with more joining since. This could increase the claim's stakes, currently valued at over £250 million including interest.


Eligibility to join the group action is extended to any licensed green or yellow badge driver who was licensed in London from June 2012 to December 2018. The calculated compensation for drivers operating full-time during this period could individually top £25,000.

The legal pursuit is labelled as risk-free for participants, thanks to After The Event (ATE) insurance coverage, which safeguards against any financial liabilities should the claim not succeed.


A RGL Management BULit21 spokesperson said this week: “Have you registered for BULit21 legal action against Uber? The deadline for registering is 5pm on 31st May 2024.”
