Why Uber can no longer operate in London

Transport for London (TfL) has barred Uber from operating in London over ‘its approach to reporting criminal offences’. TFL ruled that the minicab app is ‘not fit and proper’ to work in a city like London due to its lack of compliance to public safety and security implications.

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan stated, “All companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect – particularly when it comes to the safety of customers. Providing an innovative service must not be at the expense of customer safety and security.”

Moreso, the firm has been criticized severally over lack of customers’ safety, working rights for drivers and disagreement from traditional black cab drivers – who also staged a protest against Uber. Participation of private hire drivers in London has increased so much between 2013 and 2014 which shrunk business for black cab drivers.

British lawmakers wrote against the renewal of Uber’s licence last week, and this made the transport firm lose its bid of renewal which expires on September 30.
