Unfortunately for Uber in London, it appears that the company has since lost its license to operate in the city. According to London’s transport regulator, Transport for London, they have since refused to grant Uber a new license to operate in the city. It should be noted that the organization had previously revoked Uber’s license back in 2017, but they have been extending it in the past few months.
However, in the latest development, it seems that they are revoking Uber’s license for good. According to the Transport for London, they cite a “pattern of failures” which has led to them to lose faith in the company. They claim that while Uber has made some changes to how it operates, it just wasn’t enough.
In a post on the organization’s website, “However, TfL has identified a pattern of failures by the company including several breaches that placed passengers and their safety at risk. Despite addressing some of these issues, TfL does not have confidence that similar issues will not reoccur in the future, which has led it to conclude that the company is not fit and proper at this time.”
