Uber banned from Lon­don

The Week - Junior - - Home News -

On 22 Septem­ber, the taxi ser­vice Uber was told that its li­cence to op­er­ate in Lon­don would not be re­newed. Uber al­lows cus­tomers to or­der the near­est taxi by us­ing an app, and it’s used by 3.5 mil­lion peo­ple in the cap­i­tal. Transport for Lon­don (TfL) claims Uber is not re­spon­si­ble enough when it comes to check­ing driv­ers or re­port­ing se­ri­ous crim­i­nal of­fences. Uber will ap­peal TfL’s de­ci­sion, but 40,000 Uber driv­ers are con­cerned that they might lose their jobs.
