TFL & Mayor of London Reject UBER Appeal

This petition had 8 supporters

TfL and their chairman, the Mayor of London, announced that they have decided not to renew Uber’s Operator Licence when it expires on 30th September.

By wanting to ban the app from the capital, Transport for London and their chairman the Mayor has opened up fair competition based on price and quality.

If this decision stands, it will put more than 40,000 licensed drivers out of work and deprive millions of Londoners of a convenient and affordable form of transport. That is subsidised by low-paid drivers and low-quality service.

This decision is affecting the real lives of a huge number of honest and hard-working drivers in London, allowing them to join other App services and private firms that have better Corporate Social Responsibility.

The 3.5 million Londoners who rely on Uber to get a safe, reliable and affordable ride around the best city in the world will be astounded by the decision to ban Uber from the capital minus those harmed and will therefore realise other services and forms of transport that are safer will and are available whilst new ones enter the market.

This ban shows the world that London is open to innovative companies, who bring choice to consumers and work opportunities to those who need them and protect both workers and citizens.

Safety is of the highest importance and drivers who use Uber are licensed by Transport for London and have been through the same enhanced background checks as black cab drivers, whilst UBER skirts this issue and creates danger for passenger safety. The pioneering technology has gone further to enhance safety with every trip tracked and recorded by GPS and make profits whilst customers and drivers lose out.

To defend the livelihoods of 40,000 drivers - and the consumer choice of millions of Londoners - sign this petition asking to NOT reverse the decision to ban Uber in London and reject any appeals.
