LONDON: Uber submitted an appeal on Friday against the decision by the southern coastal English city of Brighton to strip the taxi app of its license for not being “fit and proper” over data concerns and the use of drivers from outside the area.
“We have today filed our appeal at Brighton Magistrates’ Court,” an Uber spokesman stated. “We want to continue providing more choice and competition for both private hire drivers and passengers in the city.”
The Silicon Valley firm is also combating to keep its cars on the streets of London after losing its license in the British capital, its most important European market.
Uber drivers licensed in Brighton can continue being functional in the city until the appeals process is exhausted.
