    The Mayor is facing calls to ensure the licence of car hailing app Uber is not renewed, unless the company improves its working practices.

    The London Assembly is extremely concerned about the effects of these practices on other PHV operators, black cabs and even their own drivers.

    A motion agreed today by the Assembly also calls for the Mayor to have the powers to cap the number of private hire licences.


    The full text of the Motion is:

    “This Assembly notes that TfL, of which the Mayor is chairman, has renewed Uber’s Operating Licence in London for a period of four months from May 2017 to September 2017.

    This Assembly is appalled at some of the work practices of Uber and is extremely concerned about the effects of these practices on other PHV operators, black cabs and even their own drivers.

    This Assembly supports the Mayor’s request to Government that TfL be given the powers to cap the number of PHV licences and calls on him, in his capacity as chairman of TfL, not to renew Uber’s Operating Licence in London when it comes up for renewal in September 2017 unless it improves its working practices.”
