Uber loses licence to operate in London


Uber is to be sensationally stripped of its licence to operate in London in a huge blow to the ride-hailing firm.  







The dramatic announcement today by Transport for London chiefs will dismay 3.5 million Londoners who have come to rely on cheaper rides.

The decision also raises questions over the future of 40,000 minicab drivers who ply a trade with Uber in the capital.


Mayor Sadiq Khan, who heads up TfL, said after the shock ruling that “companies must play by the rules”.

Uber said its users and drivers would be “astounded” by TfL’s decision and accused the transport body and the Mayor of “caving in” to a small number of critics.

The firm confirmed it would “immediately” challenge the decision in the courts.


However the technology giant’s expulsion by TfL will delight opponents, including the black cab trade, who have criticised its safety record.

The the truth is I think uber is phasing out. Even in Nigeria, most people are tired of their bullshit. Lots of taxi apps are coming up now and well.... we will just see how it goes.

They can still operate in other parts of England. No??!

No they can't. There are allegations of their drivers, I mean some drivers abusing women.
