DSC_0502Ride-hailing company Uber will lose its license to operate in London at the end of September following a ruling by Transport for London.

TFL said the decision was made due to “public safety and security implications,” referencing the ride-sharing company’s approach to conducting background checks on drivers and reporting criminal offenses.

Uber meanwhile said it planned to appeal the decision. The company has 21 days to do so, and will be allowed to operate while the appeals are ongoing.

Approximately 3.5 million people use Uber in London, and the city has around 40,000 drivers in the capital of the United Kingdom.
