Uber wins back its right to operate in London
Uber has won the right to operate in London for another 15 months. The company's ability to offer service in the city had been called into question last September when London's transportation regulator denied Uber's application for a five-year renewal of its license.
Uber appealed that ruling, and on Tuesday the Westminister Magistrates' Court ruled in favor of renewing the company's license for a 15-month probationary period. Uber was allowed to continue operating in London while it appealed the ruling.
The decision was a vindication of the more conciliatory strategy of Uber's new CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi.
