Uber files appeal to overturn London license loss

Uber's London licence appeal deadline looms

"As our new CEO [chief executive] has said, we are determined to make things right", an Uber spokesperson said.

Uber was required to begin its appeal by Friday or it would not be allowed to continue operating in London.

Uber Technologies Inc. appealed a London regulator's decision to revoke the auto service's license as it seeks more settlement talks.

Its spokesman added that details of Uber's arguments against the decision will not be released until nearer the time of the appeal being heard.

Uber's appeal is expected to take place on December 11. "The parties will be made aware of the [appeals hearing] date formally".

London's transport authorities decided last month not to renew Uber's operating license, citing a lack of corporate responsibility and concerns about public safety.


New global Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi met TfL Commissioner Mike Brown for talks earlier this month, which both sides said were "constructive" as the $70-billion firm tries to fix its relationship with the regulator. He also made a personal visit to the city for talks with the regulator.

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.

But he pledged to appeal the TfL decision "on behalf of millions of Londoners".

Uber will continue to operate in London throughout the whole appeal process, which could take up to a year or more.
