Uber files appeal against London ban

Disappointment for Uber today if it was hoping an apology and a personal visit from its new CEO would quickly reboot relations with the local transport regulator in London, which last month stripped the company of its license to operate.

"We have this morning filed our appeal on the London licence decision at Westminster Magistrates' Court", Uber said in a statement ahead of the Friday deadline.

A judicial office spokesman said a hearing was likely to take place on 11th December.

Uber has formally lodged its appeal against Transport for London's decision not to renew its private hire operating license.

"As our new CEO (Dara Khosrowshahi) has said, we are determined to make things right".

New global Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi met TfL Commissioner Mike Brown for talks earlier this month, which both sides said were "constructive" as the $70-billion firm tries to fix its relationship with the regulator.

The authorities have a number of concerns about Uber, including its approach to reporting serious criminal offences and its use of technology that allegedly helps it to evade law enforcement officials.

The talks were described by both sides as "constructive".

His predecessor, Travis Kalanick, left the company following allegations that managers didn't adequately address reports of sexual harassment.

The new boss has apologised for "the mistakes we've made" and accepted that the company had "got things wrong".

If Uber loses its appeal, 40,000 jobs will be on the line and although Uber and Londoners believe the company should be allowed to stick around, other members of the UK Government disagree. A petition launched by Uber to protest TfL's decision has gathered more than 800,000 signatures.
