Uber has been granted a new 15 month license after winning an appeal against TFL to have its licence removed. The ride-hailing service impressed judge with sweeping changes to its practices.
“We are pleased with today’s decision. We will continue to work with TfL to address their concerns and earn their trust, while providing the best possible service for our customers.” – Tom Elvidge, general manager of Uber in the UK.
