Uber London Not Operating In Chelmsford...Oh Dear How Sad, Never Mind!

Putting aside the fact that Uber have been operating illegally with the full knowledge and permission of TfL for he last 6 years....Just when you thought it couldn't get more crazy...

Uber come up with a plan to geofence the TfL Greater Metropolitan Police District. 

This is the area that TfL licensed Taxis are allowed to openly ply for hire. It's also the area where TfL licensed private hire operators are allowed to operate within....

Uber, as we all know have been operating a boarder less system and have recently decided to woo TfL with the idea of a geofenced area. 

Sounds ok...but have a look at their interpretation of the area covered by TFL's Greater London. 

Since when has Gatwick been inside the GMPD?

Since when has Stansted been inside the GMPD?

When was Luton in ducted into the GMPD?

Also Basildon, Chatham, Tilbury, Gilford, Slough???

Uber still operating the policy that it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission still reigns supreme. 

If they can't get London right, what chance does the rest of the U.K. have for Uber working inside current legislation and abiding by local regulations?
