Uber: Will it get its London licence back?

Taxi booking firm Uber will soon hear whether its licence to operate in London will be renewed, and if so, by how long. If TfL does decide against allowing the company to operate, Uber has 21 days to appeal against TfL's decision and can continue to operate while any appeals are continuing. In July, Indian ride-hailing company Ola got a 15-month agreement for its entry into the London market, while ViaVan got a three-year licence renewal. Uber's use of secret software, called "Greyball", which could be used to block regulators from gaining full access to the app, was another factor, according to TfL. At the time, Uber rejected TfL's claims that it endangered public safety and said Greyball had never been used in the UK for the purposes cited by TfL.What has Uber done to try to get its licence back? A question put last week to Mr Khan about the licence renewal is still awaiting a reply, according to the London Authority's website.
