News struck this morning about the London transport authority banning Uber. While the use of sharing economy services is still controversial, attendees won’t be happy for sure. We have proof.
The news is out today and it is disruptive for sharing economy services, a favourite choice for attendees at large events.
TfL (Transport for London) says that Uber “demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications”.
Uber now has time to appeal and the ban won’t go into effect immediately. It is likely it will drag on for a while and Uber has successfully overruled such motions in the past. Yet, it is quite disrupting news if you are planning events in London with a large number of attendees.
