Uber appeals decision to cancel its London license

Uber appeals decision to cancel its London license

"We have this morning filed our appeal on the London licence decision at Westminster Magistrates' Court", Uber said in a statement ahead of the Friday deadline.

Uber fanatics in London can breathe easy.

Uber's appeal is expected to take place on December 11.

The Financial Times reports that an Uber representative stated the appeal had been submitted while "constructive discussions" with TfL continue. "As our new CEO [chief executive] has said, we are determined to make things right", an Uber spokesperson said.

Mayor Sadiq Khan support TfL's decision and said: "All companies in London must play by the rules, if you do play by the rules, you're welcome in London".

Uber on Friday filed its appeal against a decision by London authorities not to renew its licence, the United States ride-hailing company said.

Uber's London licence expired on 30 September after TfL ruled it was not a "fit and proper" operator.
