Uber's appeal over licence renewal to be heard in the spring

Uber's appeal against Transport for London's decision not to renew its licence will be heard in the spring.

Parties for both sides appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday for a case management hearing.

A full appeal hearing is expected to take place in either May or June next year, with a date yet to be set. In September TfL refused to renew Uber's licence on the grounds of "public safety and security implications".

Some 3.5 million passengers and 40,000 drivers use the service in London, according to Uber.
