Uber granted stay of execution after filing TfL appeal

14 October 2017, 12:29 | Austin Hogan

The business this morning filed its intent to appeal the decision with Westminster Magistrates' Court, which will temporarily extend its operations in the United Kingdom capital, an Uber spokeswoman told The Register.

Uber has filed its legal appeal against losing its licence to operate in London, with the ride-hailing company set to take on the city's transport regulator in court.

Uber has submitted a court appeal to overturn a decision by London's transport regulator stripping the taxi app of its operating licence in one of its most important foreign markets.

A hearing is likely to take place on December 11, a spokesman at Britain's Judicial Office told Reuters. "As our new CEO [chief executive] has said, we are determined to make things right", an Uber spokesperson said.

TFL accused Uber last month of showing a "lack of corporate responsibility" in relation to "public safety and security".

Talks in the capital earlier this month between the company's new chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi and transport commissioner Mike Brown were described by both sides as "constructive".

Last month, regulators Transport for London (TLF) failed to renew Uber's license and gave the US firm until October 13 to appeal.

Mayor Sadiq Khan support TfL's decision and said: "All companies in London must play by the rules, if you do play by the rules, you're welcome in London". The company launched a campaign to win over its London customers.

Some 3.5 million passengers and 40,000 drivers use the service in London, according to Uber.

In making its decision not to renew Uber's licence, TfL had cited concerns including Uber's approach to reporting criminal offences, how it conducted medical and criminal checks on drivers, and whether software employed to evade regulation was being used in London.
