Uber files appeal to regain London license

Uber Technologies Inc. on Dec. 13 submitted an appeal against the decision of London's transportation authority not to renew the ride-hailing company's operating license, Reuters reported, citing Transport for London, or TfL, director Helen Chapman.

TfL in November said it will not grant Uber London a new private hire operator's license following "a pattern of failures by the company including several breaches that placed passengers and their safety at risk."

According to the latest report, Chapman said it would be for a magistrate to decide whether Uber London is "fit and proper" to hold a new license.

Uber has about 45,000 licensed drivers in the capital.

The San Francisco-based company was also denied a license by TfL in 2017 over a lack of corporate responsibility in issues related to passenger safety and security. Since then, Uber has been operating in London on provisional licenses.
