Uber officially appeals London decision, can carry on operating for now

Uber Seeks More London Negotiations as It Appeals License Ban

Uber Seeks More London Negotiations as It Appeals License Ban

TfL listed four issues in its Uber license decision - namely: Uber's approach to reporting serious criminal offenses; its approach to how driver medical certificates are obtained; its approach to carrying out background checks to ensure drivers do not have a criminal record; and how it has explained its use of internal software (codenamed Greyball) in London - software apparently created to try to block regulatory oversight.

Uber has formally lodged its appeal against Transport for London's decision not to renew its private hire operating license.

Uber, which can continue to operate during its appeal, was banned by Transport for London on September 22 over safety concerns and the company's attempts to avoid regulation.

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

SC holds firm on Delhi cracker ban, says don't communalise it
The bench, however, indicated that it had not put any ban on bursting of crackers. People burst firecrackers to celebrate the festival.

Transport for London (TfL) claims that the conduct of Uber, which has about 40,000 drivers and 3.5 million customers in the British capital, had raised concerns.

"As our new CEO has said, we are determined to make things right". The first hearing on the issue is expected on December 11.

The company is permitted to operate while the appeal works its way through the courts.

The company came under scrutiny in Britain after it emerged that dozens of rape and sexual assault claims had been made against their drivers and when one of their drivers used his vehicle in a recent terror attack on Buckingham Palace. He has also apologized for the company's past behavior.

Previous to this, Khosrowshahi penned an open letter to London in the Evening Standard apologising for the mistakes that lead to Uber having its licence yanked.

TfL said it took the decision on the grounds of "public safety and security implications".

Mr Khosrowshahi took over at Uber in August after predecessor Travis Kalanick resigned following a series of scandals.
