Freewheeling, regs. rejecting Uber executives are bragging they will launch UberPool in London, the ride sharing service that is banned in most countries all over the world. There are huge safety issues, and this could be a step too far.Sounds like Uber has finally pushed TfL over the edge, because Sir Peter Hendy says Try that one, and it will be a case of Licence Revoked. He is likely to have the full agreement of Boris Johnson, who might do the revoking.
The Telegraph reported: “Uber, whose growth in London has sparked widespread protests from the black cab industry, is facing questions over its future in London after Transport for London proposed new restrictions on minicab services.”
One of those restrictions suggests UberPool should be blocked completely. There are huge safety concerns about the app.
The megalomania of Uber executives seems to know no bounds, they actually believe they can dictate London’s traffic future! It’s High Noon for the taxi trade. What’s right is right. Anyone who knows the details of the Uber attempt to take over in London by killing the black cab trade, for centuries the best cab service in the world, can only be glad it is crunch time.
