More than 400,000 citizens call for renewal of Uber license in London

More than 400,000 citizens today in an online petition to transport regulator Transport For London (TfL) to revoke its decision not to renew the license to the North American company Uber in London.

London, Sep 23 (EFE) .- More than 400,000 citizens today in an online petition to transport regulator Transport For London (TfL) to revoke its decision not to renew the license to the Uber company in London.

The decision was announced this Friday when it was considered that the security measures offered by Uber are insufficient for its users. An application online via the Change.org platform, initiated by Uber London, warns that "if this decision prevails, more than 40,000 licensed drivers will be left without work and deprive millions of Londoners of a convenient and affordable way of transport. "

The multinational company license will expire, if the situation does not vary, on 30 September, when TfL concluded that Uber "does not meet the requirements" needed to operate in the city, due to questions of "citizen security".

The regulator questions the controls that Uber, who manages a telephone application of taxi services, makes his drivers as well as his attitude towards possible serious crimes.

One of the signers of the online petition, Glenn Gathercole, of London, told local media today that the company provides a "necessary alternative" to other forms of transport as it is "more efficient, safer and more economical."

Mayor of London, Labor Sadiq Khan, has backed the decision of TfL, the presiding body, and declared Friday that "it would be wrong to continue issuing a license to Uber if this can pose a risk to the safety of Londoners. "
