GMB says Uber has had ‘more chances than a game of monopoly’ after the company’s licence extension.

Transport for London today [Tuesday 24 September] announced its decision to issue Uber London Limited (ULL) with a two-month private hire operator licence ahead of consideration of any potential further licensing application.

Steve Garelick, GMB Regional Officer said:

“Uber has had more chances than a game of Monopoly

“A two month licence extension is no good for anyone – it leaves uncertainty for drivers and passengers, meanwhile Uber still operates an unsafe model on the streets of London

“Transport for London has simple kicked the can down the road and show no regard for driver or public safety.
