Uber will continue to operate in its largest European market until a hearing scheduled for either April or June of next year, a judge has ruled.
Judge Emma Arbuthnot has set the potential date for a 5 day trial to determine whether Uber can continue operating in London after it’s license was revoked on concerns regarding safety and regulations.
“We filed our appeal so that we can continue serving millions of riders and tens of thousands of drivers in London,” an Uber spokesperson said.
“However, we continue having constructive discussions with Transport for London in order to resolve this. As our new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has said, we are determined to make things right.”
Ahead of the Monday hearing a Transport for London spokesman said: “This is the preliminary hearing in Uber London Ltd.’s appeal of our decision not to grant them a new private hire operator’s licence. No further comment will be made pending the full appeal hearing.”
