London Mayor Sadiq Khan welcomed the humbleness shown by Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi who met the city’s transport regulator today in a bid to reverse a decision removing the company of its operating licence.
Transport for London (TfL) stunned Uber last month by considering it unfit to run a taxi service and rejecting to renew its licence, pointing out the company’s approach to reporting serious criminal offences and background examination on drivers.
Sadiq Khan, a centre-left politician from the opposition Labour party, has formerly criticized Uber and stated that instead of hiring “an army of PR experts and an army of lawyers” the company had to deal with the problems raised by TfL.
“What gives me confidence about the TFL decision is the fact that the worldwide chief executive officer for Uber apologized to London,” Khan informed LBC radio.
“I believe that bodes well in relation to the humility which hasn’t been shown by Uber London or Uber UK,” he stated.
