Uber’s new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi flew into London for a Tuesday meeting with Transport for London to try to salvage the company’s business in its largest European market. No deal was reached, but both sides said the meeting was fruitful.
"Our new CEO had a constructive meeting with the Transport Commissioner this afternoon," Uber said in a statement. "We hope to have further discussions over the coming weeks as we are determined to make things right in London." Uber’s licence was revoked last month, a surprise move by regulators that could affect thousands of drivers and millions of passengers.
"Today’s constructive meeting centered on what needs to happen to ensure a thriving taxi and private hire market in London where everyone operates to the same high standards," Transportation for London, the regulator, said in a statement. "Further steps in this process will take place over the coming weeks."
