Uber to learn London operator’s licence appeal fate on 28 September


Ride-hailing firm Uber will learn whether they have been granted a new London operator’s licence on 28 September.

As part of a three-day court appeal which started on Tuesday, Uber are appealing against Transport for London’s (TfL) decision not to renew its operating licence because of safety breaches that put passengers at risk.

In November 2019 London’s regulators announced that it would not grant the minicab firm a new private hire operator’s licence following its latest application.


TfL said at the time that whilst they recognised that Uber had made a number of positive changes and improvements, they had identified a ‘pattern of failures by the company including several breaches that placed passengers and their safety at risk’.

TfL added that they did not have confidence that similar issues will not reoccur in the future, which led TfL to conclude that the company was not fit and proper to hold an operator’s licence in the capital.

This week’s hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court started on Tuesday run for three days finishing on Thursday. Senior District Judge Tan Ikram will now announce the result of Uber’s appeal on Monday 28 September.
