On 24 September, Transport for London (TfL) announced its decision to issue Uber London Limited (ULL) a two-month private hire operator licence ahead of consideration of any potential further licensing application. The new two-month licence will have the same conditions that ULL has been subject to over the last 15 months, along with new conditions to ensure passenger safety.

TfL’s original decision not to license ULL has led to the app-based firm improving its culture and governance. TfL is requesting additional material from ULL which will help inform any future licensing decision.
