Boston Herald - - OPINION -

Lon­don's trans­port au­thor­ity said yes­ter­day that its com­mis­sioner will meet with the chief ex­ec­u­tive of Uber next week.

The meet­ing with Uber CEO Dara Khos­row­shahi comes af­ter Lon­don tran­sit au­thor­i­ties de­cided to strip the ride-hail­ing service of its li­cense to op­er­ate in the Bri­tish cap­i­tal.

Uber said its new chief ex­ec­u­tive was “look­ing for­ward” to the meet­ing in Lon­don and wanted to work with city au­thor­i­ties to “make things right.”

The city's trans­porta­tion agency, Trans­port for Lon­don, said last week it would not re­new Uber's li­cense when it ex­pires today, cit­ing a lack of cor­po­rate re­spon­si­bil­ity. Uber has said it plans to ap­peal the rul­ing.
