Magistrates Court on Uber Refusal

Today Westminster Magistrates Court handed down its judgement in Uber London Limited v Transport for London & Others [2020] EW Misc 20 (MagC) (28 September 2020).  It was tasked with considering an appeal by Uber London Limited (Uber) against the decision taken by Transport for London (TfL), on 25th November 2020, not to renew its private hire operator licence.  TfL, specifically, invited the Deputy Chief Magistrate “…to consider whether [Uber’s] overrall track-record of breaches and systems changes is sufficient to give the Court confidence that [Uber] is fit and proper to hold a PHV operator’s licence…” (at para. 47).   The Court held Uber is ‘fit and proper‘ but did attach licence conditions.
