Save Your Uber in London

TfL and their chairman, the Mayor of London, announced last week that they have decided not to renew Uber’s Operator Licence when it expires on 30th September.
By wanting to ban our app from the capital, Transport for London and their chairman the Mayor have given in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice. 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. This decision is affecting the real lives of a huge number of honest and hard-working drivers in London.
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.
This ban shows the world that London is far from being open and is closed to innovative companies, who bring choice to consumers and work opportunities to those who need them.
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. Our pioneering technology has gone further to enhance safety with every trip tracked and recorded by GPS.
To defend the livelihoods of 40,000 drivers - and the consumer choice of millions of Londoners - sign this petition asking to reverse the decision to ban Uber in London.
- Mayor of London
I am astounded to hear that you and Transport for London have announced you do not want Uber to be allowed to operate in London. This decision would put 40,000 TfL-licensed drivers who rely on the app to earn a living out of work, as well as depriving more than 3.5 million Londoners of a convenient and affordable form of transport.
Drivers who use Uber are licensed by Transport for London and have been through the same enhanced background checks as black cab drivers. Uber’s pioneering technology has also gone further to enhance safety with every trip tracked and recorded by GPS.
As our Mayor, I urge you to consider the impact that this decision will have on 40,000 families who rely on Uber and millions of Londoners who use Uber to get around, and allow Uber to continue operating in our city.
