Uber granted stay of execution after filing TfL appeal

Khosrowshahi and Brown met up earlier this month to discuss revoking the decision, and renewing Uber's license.

Westminster magistrates court received legal papers from Uber this morning, outlining their appeal against TfL's decision to remove its licence after the department ruled the popular ride-hailing firm wasn't "fit and proper" to operate in London.

A hearing is likely to place on 11 December, according to a judicial office spokesman.

London transport authorities last month said they would not renew Uber's licence to operate in the city owing to public safety concerns.

An Uber spokesperson said: "While we have today filed our appeal so that Londoners can continue using our app, we hope to continue having constructive discussions with Transport for London". In his open letter Khosrowshahi vowed to make things right with for Uber, so that it can still drive through the streets of London.


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. He has also apologized for the company's past behavior.

Uber Technologies Inc. appealed a London regulator's decision to revoke the auto service's license as it seeks more settlement talks.

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

At the same time, its drivers have been struggling with a wave of opposition from traditional taxis in several countries - and has faced regulatory problems in other hubs including Cape Town, Mumbai, and New Delhi.

An online petition to "save" Uber has garnered over 850,000 signatures.
