From October 1 Uber is banned in London


A number of reasons have been cited for stripping its license. Uber has 21 days to appeal this decision by Tfl.

On Friday, London’s transport regulator stripped Uber of its license to operate in the city as of September 30, in a significant blow to Uber.

The decision will have an impact on 40,000 drivers.

TfL considers that Uber’s approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications,” said Transport for London (Tfl) on Friday.

The decision comes in the wake of the firm facing mounting criticism from lawmakers, unions as well as traditional black cab drivers, over working conditions.

Uber has 21 days to appeal this decision.
