Online car transport service Uber has won a legal dispute over the right to have a license to operate in the British capital, according to court data.
Uber, in December last year, filed an appeal against the decision of the London transport management company Transport for London (TfL), which did not renew the service's license due to concerns for the safety of taxi passengers.
One of the main complaints against the company was that the service system allowed unscrupulous drivers to change their personal data, which is why drivers without insurance and who did not pass the necessary checks went to work instead.
London's Westminster magistrates' court on Monday found Uber "fit and proper" to have an operating license in the British capital, despite "historical errors."
Uber previously operated under a short-term license issued by a court in 2018 after TfL decided not to renew the service's license in September 2017.
As previously stated by the management of Uber, the company, over the past two years, has fundamentally changed the business and set safety standards.
Uber is represented in 40 cities in the UK. The company employs more than 60 thousand licensed drivers. In London, the service is used by about 3.5 million passengers, 45 thousand drivers work.
Uber is a car transportation service that allows you to order a private taxi. The company was established in 2009. It has a headquarter in San Francisco. Today, Uber services are available in more than 100 cities around the world. The company receives a commission of 20% from taxi drivers for each call.
