Statement - Chair Of The London Assembly On Tfl’s Decision On Uber

Jennette Arnold OBE AM, Chair of the London Assembly, said on 22 September:

“We welcome Transport for London’s decision to not renew Uber’s licence. The London Assembly unanimously agreed for the licence to not be renewed, unless the company improved its working practices.

Londoners’ safety must come first and the Assembly was concerned about the effects of Uber’s practices on its own drivers, other private hire operators and the London licenced taxi trade.

If Uber wants to operate in London in the future, it really must up its game in terms of safety and its working conditions.”
