Uber is no longer allowed to operate in London
Vehicle sharing application Uber received a heavy blow on behalf of its operations in Europe. In countries where it served outside the United States, Uber eventually had to withdraw from some of the cities especially after the heavy reaction from the taxi drivers. Now the passenger transport license in London has been canceled.
According to the regulator that controls public transport in London, Uber will no longer be granted a new license, which will expire on September 30th.
The American company reacted with this decision. Explaining that they will take the decision to court, Uber also underlined that they were hurt by the investments they made in London. On the other hand, the Governor of London has commented on the subject, saying, “We want the people of London to use their technological developments comfortably and make their lives easier, but we must not allow companies that do not comply with the rules.”
It seems that the company has not stopped in London either from contradicting the authorities and breaking the rules. We still remember that the federal government had to step in and warn them after they said that “we do not have to take permission from anyone,” as they made driverless car tests unauthorized in California in 2016.
