Ride-hailing firm Uber agree they “have more work to do” following their short-term London licence renewal this week.
The US minicab company were however quick to point out the improved culture and governance of Uber, which was recognised by Transport for London (TfL).
In the open statement made by Uber they highlighted improvements to passenger safety and plans to help enhance the capital’s air quality.
Despite concerns from private hire driver representatives about workers rights and pay, Uber claimed the average London driver earns approximately £11 an hour after costs on the app.
Uber also pointed towards a recent Oxford University study with found that the vast majority (94%) choose to work with the firm because they value the freedom and flexibility it brings.
An Uber spokesperson said: “TfL’s recognition of our improved culture and governance reflects the progress we have made in London. We will continue to work closely with TfL and provide any additional requested information.
“Over the past two years, we’ve launched a range of new safety features in the app, introduced better protections for drivers and our Clean Air Plan is helping to tackle air pollution.
“But we know that we have more work to do. We will keep listening, learning and improving to provide the best service while being a trusted partner to London.”
