Uber seeks talks with London mayor to renew licence

Uber is prepared to make concessions to ensure its licence to operate in London is renewed, its general manager for the capital has said. Uber has been asking to meet Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, since his election in May 2016 but those requests have been rejected, according to sources close to the US company. More than 630,000 people have signed an online petition in a bid to keep Uber operating in London after its licence expires on 30 September. "Drivers who use Uber in London are licensed by TfL and have been through the same enhanced DBS background checks as black cab drivers." Although there are apps such as Mytaxi and Gett that allow passengers to hail black cabs in London, as well as those from minicab firms such as Addison Lee, Uber has no direct rival in the capital.
