The proposed rule changes for minicabs specifically target Uber’s operation. The most damaging rules include a ban on showing available cars for hire on an app, a ban on drivers working for more than one company; devastating news for drivers working part time for Uber, and controls on “ridesharing” that would scuttle Uber’s plans to bring their ridesharing UberPool service to London. The most bizzare proposal stipulates that passengers must wait 5 minutes from booking a ride until they can get in car; a rule that could lead to vulnerable passengers being artificially forced to wait on street corners late at night before they could get a ride.

Why are TFL listening to the Taxi lobby Luddites?

Quote of the Day

Matt Zarb-Cousin cracks a good ideological joke…

“Conservatives don’t like a ‘robot tax’ because it means they’d have a tax on their own leader – the Maybot.”
