Mayor of London response to TfL's licensing decision on Uber

22 September 2017

I want London to be at the forefront of innovation and new technology and to be a natural home for exciting new companies that help Londoners by providing a better and more affordable service. 

However, all companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect - particularly when it comes to the safety of customers.  Providing an innovative service must not be at the expense of customer safety and security.

I fully support TfL’s decision - it would be wrong if TfL continued to license Uber if there is any way that this could pose a threat to Londoners’ safety and security. 

Any operator of private hire services in London needs to play by the rules.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
