Almost Five Years On And TfL Have Said And Done Nothing About UberBV Operating Without A Licence. by...Jim Thomas


Open letter to TFL's Commissioner, Mike Brown...

Dear Mike
Now we've shown you the evidence that UberBV have been (and still are) operating in London without an operators Licence, why have you not ordered them to cease operating with immediate effect?

Was this not your reaction when you found Taxify operating without a Licence in their name?
What makes UberBV different to Taxify?

After all Mike, you said you wanted it to go on record that you had nothing to do with the initial licensing of Uber!!!
Perhaps you would also like to be seen by your actions as having nothing to do with the UberBV cover up?

Over the past 10 days, thanks to Tim Fenton's 'Zelo Street' blog, it's become clear that UberBV has been operating in London since 2012, as a Private Hire operator, through a smart phone instant hail app, without holding a TfL Private Hire operators licence.

We now know this to be fact!

We also have evidence that TfL knew this was the case as long ago as 2013. 


CLIFF LLEWELYN INFORMED:-
SIWAN HAYWARD, SIMON BUGGEY AND SONIA ALLMAN IN DECEMBER 2013.

Tim Fenton's latest revelation carries a report regarding John Mason's presentation which confirms TFL's light touch approach to licensing regulations... favouring Uber's London operation:
In Tim's article, he posts slides of the presentation 
TfL Approach to Apps”, where John Mason restates “A light touch regulatory approach”, and ends with “Let the quality of product and service provided to passengers dictate market”.

To this day, TfL have said and done nothing with the evidence they've had. 
Even though they knew, all Uber's Journeys were initially booked and dispatched to directly to drivers, by the unlicensed UberBV, they allowed this modus operandi to continue.

The facts are now out in the open, posted on numerous Taxi and PH sites and publications. Virtually everyone in our trade now know:-

EVERY JOURNEY ON THE UBER LONDON PLATFORM PASSED AND PRESENT, HAS BEEN ILLEGALLY DISPATCHED WITH TFL'S BLESSING.
Not only that, TfL have the evidence that it's the drivers who accept the bookings, direct in vehicle in contravention of the PH Vehicles Act 1998.

So Mike, why as Commisioner of TfL have you not acted immediately, on the information given to you?
Why are TfL continuing to cover up the facts in Uber's favour?

We need TfL to take enforcement action now!!!
If we wait till the appeal hearing, it will be too late...as now they know the games up, UberBV will apply for and be given a licence in place of Uber London Ltd.
