Uber isn’t against the law, rules TfL

Taxi app Uber has been given the green light in London, even after a huge protest in central London last month.

Transport for London has ruled Uber is perfectly lawful, despite concerns from black cabbies it might have been breaking taxi-metering rules.

TfL said: “In relation to the way Uber operates in London, TfL is satisfied that based upon our understanding of the relationship between the passenger and Uber London, and between Uber London and Uber BV, registered in Holland, that it is operating lawfully under the terms of the 1998 PHV(L) Act.”

  • TFL are liars. At the time of issuing Uber with an operators licence Uber did not meet all the necessary criteria. Ask yourself if transport for London did there job properly why was it necessary to take it to the high courts. Look at Uber globally a third party App who need to disrupt existing legislation in which to bring it to market. Do not be fooled by glossy marketing.
