Uber secures licence to operate in Aberdeen

Uber has officially been granted a licence to operate in Aberdeen, marking the company's expansion into its third Scottish city after Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The decision follows Uber's initial attempt to launch in Aberdeen in 2018, which ended with the company surrendering its licence.

Earlier this year, Uber submitted a fresh application to Aberdeen City Council's licensing committee. The committee meeting saw a mix of support and objections from various representatives, but ultimately, the application was approved.

This move is part of Uber’s broader UK growth strategy, responding to increasing demand for ride-hailing services. The company has already secured licences in cities like Hull, Swansea, and Stockton-on-Tees. Since 2021, Uber has seen its driver numbers surge by over 70%, now boasting over 100,000 drivers nationwide.

Aberdeen now joins a growing list of UK cities where Uber is working to establish a stronger presence.
