Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said today:
“I welcome the apology from Dara Khosrowshahi, the Uber CEO. Obviously I am pleased that he has acknowledged the issues that Uber faces in London.
“Even though there is a legal process in place, I have asked TfL to make themselves available to meet with him.”
The Mayor’s response comes after an open letter of apology from Uber’s new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.
In the letter Khosrowshahi says:
“I’m sorry for the mistakes we’ve made“
“We will appeal the decision on behalf of millions of Londoners, but we do so with the knowledge that we must also change.”
Last Friday TfL declared Uber ‘not fit and proper’ to run a minicab service and decided not to renew its licence to operate, which will end this week, citing the firm’s approach to reporting serious criminal offences and background checks on drivers.
