Uber has been granted a license to operate in London, giving it the option to hire drivers for the city’s taxis.
The company will open a new London-based office and service centre, with the aim of creating a disruptive and disruptive taxi business.
Uber has been working on the project since the company launched in New York, but the company has yet to officially announce any plans for a launch in London.
London is the UK’s most populous city and has a population of more than a million people.
It is expected to become a hub for the transport sector after the introduction of the city-wide taxi ban in April.
In 2016, the UK government banned Uber from operating in London after a court ruling.
However, Uber has maintained that it has the right to operate on the capital’s streets, citing the fact that its services have been accepted in more than 100 countries.
As well as launching in London for the first time, Uber will soon launch in the US, as well as in the UK.
After a five-month trial period, Uber and the City of London were given a licence to operate taxis in the capital.
Currently, the City has a licensing regime that gives the taxi service providers the right of first refusal, meaning that drivers who fail to show up for work are refused service.
If a driver is refused service, they must first show up at a licensed premises within seven days.
During the trial period in 2017, Uber drivers and their drivers’ representatives took to the streets to demonstrate against the licensing regime, with more than 1,000 drivers signing a petition demanding Uber drivers be given the right.
Despite the protests, Uber had a very strong showing in the trial.
Last week, the London Taxi Drivers Association (LTDA) said that the licence was a “major victory” for the drivers.
“The new licensing regime gives us a lot more flexibility in how we operate our business,” said LTDA general secretary Ben Jones.
At present, the only way to be licensed in London is to get a certificate of qualification, which requires you to have completed at least five hours of training in the taxi industry.
According to the latest statistics, more than half of the 1,500 drivers licensed by the city have yet to complete training.
While Uber has yet as yet to reveal any plans to launch in New Jersey, its licensing in the state could come into play later this year.
Meanwhile, the US is set to become the third largest taxi market after New York and Los Angeles, according to the US Government Accountability Office (GAO).
