Uber granted 15-month London operating licence by court

Uber has been granted a 15-month licence to operate in London after a decision by transport officials last year to block its service on public safety grounds.

It comes just days after Uber’s UK boss admitted the decision not to renew its London licence last year was correct.

In response to the decision, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “”After years of operating poorly in London, Uber has now accepted that TfL’s action in refusing to renew their licence was totally justified. Today our stance has been vindicated by the court.

“Uber has been put on probation – their 15 month licence has a clear set of conditions that TfL will thoroughly monitor and enforce.”

He added: “no matter how powerful and how big you are, you must play by the rules.”
