Uber granted two-month London licence

Uber has been granted a two-month licence to continue operating in London.

Transport for London (TfL) said the app-based ride-hailing firm must meet new conditions to “ensure passenger safety”.

It could have granted Uber a new five-year licence.

The transport body has requested that the firm provides “additional material” ahead of any future licensing application.

In June 2018, Uber was granted a 15-month licence by a judge after it appealed against a TfL decision not to renew its licence over safety concerns.

This was due to expire on Wednesday.

A TfL spokesman said: “Uber London Limited has been granted a two-month private hire operator licence to allow for scrutiny of additional information that we are requesting ahead of consideration of any potential further licensing application.”
