Renew Uber London's private hire operator licence.
About 5 years back this revolutionary app which matches riders with the drivers changed the face of transport in London. Ever since its arrival Uber has not only provided a reliable low cost transport to Londoners but also been a source of main or additional income for over 40,000 of its drivers.
Today due to a shock decision by the Transport of London supported by the Mayor Sadiq Khan Uber's license to operate in London will not be renewed. This means 3.5 million Londoners who use it every week will have to go back to the poor service of extremely overpriced and unreliable "licensed" minicabs, even more expensive London black cabs or much inferior to Uber and yet again more pricey companies such as Addison Lee.
Transport in London is expensive as it is and gets pricier every year and now it seems that millions of people will lose the ability to travel cheaply, conveniently and quickly with Uber. Is this the type of modern and all-welcoming capital London is trying to be?
