How will all us unscrupulous millennials get home now?? I’m not getting the nightbus nor a black cab I’ll tell you that.
There are loads of other companies doing similar stuff in London though right?
Never used an Uber, can’t envisage any occasion where I would do so, quite honestly.
Oh man, Uber’s shit but that’s a fuckload of job losses
My next door neighbour’s an Uber driver with two kids
Widely agree with ruffers here I reckon.
I used one once and what it cost me I could’ve put down a deposit for a Porsche on Hire Purchase.
Good for you, those who rely on a convenient, safe and relatively affordable way to get home at night are probably less pleased, not to mention the job losses.
I don’t reckon there’s any chance whatsoever that Uber end up renewing their license under slightly stricter and more expensive terms
What’s the rationale for this then? 24 hour tubes > Uber, is that it?
Yeah upon actually reading the article this is something over nothing
Read TfL’s statement:
They’ll renew it with marginally more tax (probably recouped in the long run from westminster policy)
It’ll be to do with the vetting, employment, taxation and insurance /liability conditions, I guess.
Uber are successful because they effectively outsource all of the above onto employees and customers and because VCs keep throwing money at them as a result.
They can just become regular mini cab drivers instead.
taxi for uber would’ve been a better title. cheers
How the flying fuck do you book a mini cab?
