TAXI firm Uber will be spared a review into its operational licences in Scotland as London transport bosses announced the company would not have its permission to work in the city renewed.
Transport For London concluded on Friday the minicab app is “not fit and proper” to operate in the capital from the end of this month due to concerns which have “public safety and security implications”.
The news has sparked a petition signed by more than 400,000 people.
In Scotland, Uber currently operates in Glasgow and Edinburgh and is looking to soon launch in Aberdeen. Despite the London move, Scottish councils have ruled out a review into the firm’s operational licence here.
