Uber kicked out of London

The global cab service Uber will be kicked out of London following the decision by Mayor Sadiq Khan and his administration rejecting an application to renew the firm’s operating license which is to expire soon.

The announcement to kick out Uber was announced in London Friday.

It is believed that Uber ran foul of the terms of operation by setting up a technology which allowed it to evade scrutiny by the authorities in London.

About 3.5 million passengers use Uber in London where it has over 40,000 drivers.

Analysts believe that the decision not to renew Uber’s license will greatly benefit the traditional London black cabs with considerable political influence in the British capital.

Uber plans to appeal the decision and will be allowed to continue to operate until the appeal is fully determined.
