Uber appeals London ban

Ride-hailing company Uber Technologies Inc. announced it submitted an appeal on Friday against the Transport for London's (TfL) decision to call off its London operating permit. With the appeal, however, Uber gets itself more time to legally operate in one of its crucial markets.

TfL decided not to extend Uber's license last month after complaints of "several breaches that placed passengers and their safety at risk." Uber then called the decision "extraordinary and wrong," adding it had audited all of its London drivers in the previous two months.

The last time when TfL judged against Uber was in September 2017 but a court then gave the company a 15-month license extension.
