After being denied his license in London, Uber presents an apology

Lyft, Uber's closest United States rival in the taxi-hailing business, met repeatedly with officials from London's transport regulator over the past year, a sign it may be targeting the city for worldwide expansion. "Even if there is a legal process underway, I have asked the Transport authority for London (TfL) to make themselves available for the meet", added the mayor, who chairs TfL. In response, Khosrowshahi penned an open letter in the Evening Standard, apologizing for what he said was "the mistakes we've made". In publishing its decision on Friday, TfL explained, inter alia, that "Uber's approach and conduct demonstrated a lack of accountability. with potential consequences for safety and security of public".

Uber's 40,000 drivers, one third of the city's overall number of private hire automobiles, will continue to take guests until an appeals procedure is exhausted, which is most likely to take a number of months.

"It's ... true that we've got things incorrect along the way".

Khosrowshahi, who is less than a month into his new job, did not specify which mistakes Uber had made in London.

But he insisted: "We will appeal this decision on behalf of millions of Londoners, but we do so with the knowledge that we must also change".

In the wake of London's bombshell decision last week to deny Uber's licence renewal, the embattled company's new CEO has struck a conciliatory tone.

Uber could continue to operate in London for more than a year despite having its licence revoked by transport bosses.

Although Uber claims the software was created to flag users who violate the company's terms of service, a New York Times report earlier this year found that Uber had also used the software to "identify and circumvent officials who were trying to clamp down on the ride-hailing service". It has certainly confirmed that Uber would appeal, but also recognized that his company needed to change.

"But that required a dialogue we haven't been able to have", Tom Elvidge, Uber's general manager in London, told "The Sunday Times" as part of the company's conciliatory stance against TfL's verdict that it is not "fit and proper" to operate on the streets of London.

By 2200 GMT Saturday, more than 600,000 people had signed although it was not clear how many of them were in London.

"I welcome the apology by Dara Khosrowshahi, the p. -d. g".

It also warned that its fleet of 40,000 drivers would suffer from TfL's decision. Greyball was created to identify law enforcement officials, and show them a fake app interface that made it much harder to book rides. Khan reiterated that companies which played by the rules were welcome in London.
