Uber files appeal to overturn London license loss

13 Octobre 2017

According to CNBC, the company has filed its papers with Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday morning.

The transport authority said at the time that it determined Uber not to be "fit and proper to hold a private hire operator licence". The appeal is likely to take place on December 11.

The embattled San Francisco-based company is expected to file before the deadline, despite vows by officials in London to defend their ruling in any legal battle.

New global Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi met TfL Commissioner Mike Brown for talks earlier this month, which both sides said were "constructive" as the $70-billion firm tries to fix its relationship with the regulator.

Uber says it accepts it has shown "the wrong attitude" on a number of issues and is ready to change some practices.

Le lancement de la deuxième saison de " Contact " a séduit 4.219.000 téléspectateurs et 19,9% de part de marché. France 3 suit avec le téléfilm en rediffusion " La bonne dame de Nancy ".

After talks with TFL, Uber released a statement saying that it was a "constructive meeting" and that there would be further discussions in the coming weeks.

The company's head of public policy Andrew Byrne told the House of Commons Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee he believes there is a "path forward" towards resolving its dispute with Transport for London and receiving permission to continue operating in the capital. "On behalf of everyone at Uber globally, I apologize for the mistakes we've made".

London is an extremely important market for Uber. An online petition against TFL's decision has garnered over 850,000 signatures.

Beyond London, Mr Khosrowshahi seems to be trying to clean up the company's act more generally too, shaking up management, clamping down on problems around corporate culture and investigating sexual harassment claims.
