Uber's rivals ready to fill the gap but cab giant puts up a fight
The travel service faces a string of concerns about its practices that will be aired during a long appeal
The end is far from nigh for Uber, but Transport for London’s decision not to renew its licence is another wounding blow. Even after the controversies that the ride-hailing app has faced worldwide and the concerted opposition of unions, employment-rights lawyers and black-cab drivers, few expected TfL’s verdict that Uber is not a “fit and proper” firm to run taxis in the capital.
While Uber’s battle to survive in London will take place first in the courts, political heat will be piled on the capital’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, during an appeal process that could take a year or more to play out.
