Uber submits appeal to keep operating in northern UK city of York

Written by  Jan 04, 2018

LONDON (Reuters) - Uber [UBER.UL] submitted an appeal in the northern English city of York on Thursday to overturn a decision by the council not to renew its licence over concerns about a data breach and the number of complaints it had received.

“While we have today filed our appeal, we are also seeking to meet with York City Council in order to address their concerns,” a spokesman said. “We want to continue providing more choice and competition for both consumers and licensed drivers in the city.”

The firm can continue to operate until the appeals process is exhausted.

Uber is also battling to keep its cars on the streets of London, its most important European market, after it was stripped of its licence to operate. Its London appeal will be formally heard in court in June.
