Uber CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi Met with TfL’s Mike Brown for a second time as the battle for Uber’s London operators licence intensifies.
A freedom of information request has shown that Mike Brown, the Transport Commissioner for TfL, met up with the American based CEO earlier this year in January.
According to the request by Reuters the regulators for London said “"The Commissioner met with Dara Khosrowshahi on 3 October 2017 and 15 January 2018, both meetings took place in London,"
Both Uber and TfL have refused to give details in relation to the topics that were discussed during the meeting.
The controversial minicab app is soon to appear in court fighting for the right to operate in the capital following TfL’s decision back in September to not renew their operators licence.
Uber have brought in a number of changes to bring them closer to what is required by an operator. Whether this will be enough to stop any legal action being taken remains unseen, but unlikely.
