Kørselstjenesten Uber anchor refusal of license renewal in London

Uber assures that the company has taken care of the problem, which was the primary reason for the refusal in november.

Uber has on Friday appealed a decision by London's transport authority not to renew its license to operate in the british capital.

It informs Ubers regional director for northern and Eastern europe to the british news agency PA.

- We are committed to londonerne and working closely with TfL to address their concerns and requests, exactly as we have done it since 2017, says Jamie Heywood to the PA according to the news agency dpa.

TfL is the authority on the area, Transport for London.

As the TfL at the end of november declined Ubers application to renew its license, beat TfL among other things, down on that Uber has had a hole in its system that has let unauthorized drivers get access to the other drivers accounts and thus run with passengers.

It should have been done in over 14,000 cases.

- It is unacceptable that Uber has admitted that passengers could climb into a taxi with drivers who potentially do not have any licenses or insurance policies, said head of the licensing and regulation of London's trafikmyndighed Helen Chapman at the time, according to news agency Reuters.

Over the PA assures Jamie Heywood, that Uber has taken care of this problem.

- We have looked at this question. We have taken it up with TfL, and we have implemented an effective solution, he said Friday, shortly after that Uber had filed its appeal at the Westminster Magistrates' Court.

He elaborated, is not what the solution involves.

Ubers license expired at the end of november, but the company has allowed to continue to operate in London until the complaint process is completed.

the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said in connection with the refusal of the Ubers license renewal, that he agrees in the resolution, although he knows that many Uber users will be against it. Security is, according to the mayor most importantly.

There are more than 45,000 Uber-drivers in London, according to Reuters.
