Uber appeals against Transport of London

LONDON: Uber on Friday moved the court against the Transport for London's decision not to renew its licence to operate in the British capital. The American taxi-hailing company filed an appeal at the Westminster Magistrates' Court here against the ban. Uber's licence officially expired on September 30 but the service can remain up and running until the legal process is exhausted, which could mean potentially a year or more. The company said it will continue its discussions with TfL, which had ruled last month that the company was not "fit and proper" to operate in London on grounds of safety and security. "While we have filed our appeal so that Londoners can continue using our app, we hope to continue having constructive discussions with Transport for London. We are determined to make things right," an Uber spokesperson said.
