Uber files appeal at deadline to keep driving in London

Uber files appeal at deadline to keep driving in London”

The business this morning filed its intent to appeal the decision with Westminster Magistrates' Court, which will temporarily extend its operations in the United Kingdom capital, an Uber spokeswoman told The Register.

Ride-share company Uber on Friday formally filed an appeal to keep operating in London, where its license has been rescinded for weeks.

The beleaguered firm's ride-sharing app Uberpop has also been banned by courts in Germany.

The appeal allows Uber to continue operating in London until the dispute is resolved. British authorities believe that the attitude and behavior of Uber has demonstrated the lack of corporate responsibility, which may have potential implications for public safety.

Transport for London (TfL) shocked the Silicon Valley firm last month by deeming it unfit to run a taxi service and refusing to renew its licence, citing its approach to reporting serious criminal offences and background checks on drivers. "We are determined to make things right".

Talks in the capital earlier this month between the company's new chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi and transport commissioner Mike Brown were described by both sides as "constructive".

It had until 13 October to appeal the decision and can continue to operate until the end of any appeal process.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has accused Uber of not "playing by the rules".

Over the past year, the company has battled numerous PR crises culminating in the ouster of its former CEO Travis Kalanick.
