Uber CEO to Try to Keep London License

LONDON (AP) -- London's transport authority says its commissioner will meet with the chief executive of Uber next week.

The meeting with Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi comes after transit authorities decided to strip the ride-hailing service of its license to operate in the city. Authorities said Friday the meeting will take place in London.

The city's transportation agency, Transport for London, said last week it would not renew Uber's license when it expires Sept. 30, citing a lack of corporate responsibility.

Among the factors considered by the regulator was Uber's "approach to reporting serious criminal offenses" and its use of software designed to evade the authorities.

Uber has said it plans to appeal and accused London's regulator of caving in to special interests "who want to restrict consumer choice."
