Uber's Under Oath Toronto Confession....Nothing New To TfL.
The recent admissions made under oath by Uber in Toronto, seems to have everyone excited, but these claims were also made in London, THREE AND A HALF YEARS AGO....yet TfL said nothing then ....and are still tight lipped, even now!
In this letter to Westminster Planning Department, Uber openly admit they do not handle any bookings. They explain their app just connects the passenger to the nearest driver.
They further state “In this way the network can operate independently, with the clients able to phone the driver directly through the app”.
Uber also says “It is important to note that we will not be taking any traditional pre booking jobs”.
THE QUESTION NEEDS TO BE ASKED,
WHY WERE UBER GRANTED A PRIVATE HIRE OPERATOR'S LICENCE, AS THEY STATE;
