Black cab drivers have just been given the best news in years…
After the budget taxi app, Uber has just lost its licence to work in London.
The ban will take place at the end of September, and will cost the firm a f****** fortune.
TFL (Transport for London) says it ‘will not be issued with a private hire operator licence’ because they found it was ‘not fit and proper’.
Mayor of Sadiq Khan said of the decision not to issue Uber with a licence: ‘All companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect – particularly when it comes to the safety of customers.
TfL said: ‘TfL considers that Uber’s approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications.’
Uber has 21 days to appeal the decision and the final day of its current licence will be on September 30.
