Uber files appeal against London ban

Uber has filed papers to appeal against Transport for London's decision not to renew its licence, objecting to TFL's finding that the San Francisco-based ride-hailing service was not a "Fit and proper" operator in the UK's capital. The bulk of the paperwork outlining Uber's grounds for appeal will be filed later in the process, sources close to Uber said. While the appeal is pending, Uber can continue to operate in London. A representative said the company hoped "To continue having constructive discussions" with TfL. Uber has hired Thomas de la Mare QC, who previously represented the company against TfL on appeals against new regulations. TfL said: "We note that Uber has submitted an appeal. No further comment will be made pending the appeal hearing." However, it did acknowledge the meeting between Mike Brown, TfL's transport commissioner and Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber chief executive, in London earlier this month, describing it as "Constructive".
