Uber ties London license for two and half years more



Uber ties London license for two and half years more. 

On Saturday, Uber Technologies announced that it had been granted a new 30-month license to operate in London. It ended a years-long legal dispute with the city’s transportation regulator on safety concerns.

Reuters’s statement, a representative for Transport for London, said, “Uber has been given a London private hire vehicle operator’s license for two and a half years.”

Uber lost its permission to transport paying passengers in London for the second time in 2019.

However, after a legal battle to reinstate its operations, the ride-hailing company was granted an 18-month London license a year later. The company’s license was initially revoked in 2017.

Uber said it had alleviated safety concerns by enhancing insurance document verification methods and implementing real-time identification.

Last year, the company also reached an agreement with the GMB union in the United Kingdom, allowing it to represent up to 70,000 drivers.

According to the spokeswoman, TfL now considers Uber a competent and proper person and has awarded it a conditional license.

Uber UK stated that it will continue to focus on providing drivers with the perks and protections they deserve and transitioning to a 100% electrified platform by 2025.
