Uber London loses licence to operate, Transport for London says



Uber will not be issued a new private hire licence, Transport for London (TfL) has said.

 
TfL concluded the ride-hailing app firm was not fit and proper to hold a London private hire operator licence.


It said it took the decision on the grounds of "public safety and security implications".


Confirming it would appeal against the decision, Uber said it showed the world "far from being open, London is closed to innovative companies".


TfL's concerns include Uber's approach to carrying out background checks on drivers and reporting serious criminal offences.
