Transport for London will not renew Uber’s licence

Transport for London has announced that it will not renew Uber’s private hire licence after concluding it is “not fit and proper” to hold one. TfL said the taxi-hailing app had demonstrated “a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications”. It has informed the US-based company that it will not be issued with a new licence after the expiry of its current licence on 30 September.
