Call for women-only Uber Pools for London

Uber will pass any information about serious incidents directly to police

TfL's concerns include Uber's approach to carrying out background checks on drivers, and reporting serious criminal offences. "While we previously encouraged and supported individuals to report to the police serious incidents related to a trip booked through our app, we will now pro-actively make the reports", wrote the GM of Uber UK, Tom Elvidge in a lengthy statement of intent.

Last year, the Sunday Times revealed a letter written by Inspector Neil Billany of the Metropolitan Police's taxi and private hire team to TfL, exposing the force's increasing concerns about the taxi-hailing app.

Uber has been hit by a string of scandals including claims of poor working conditions, sexual harassment within the company, a massive data breach and theft of self-driving technology.

New regulations are being used to assess private hire drivers and applicants on safeguarding, disability, equality and knowledge of PHV legislation as part of an enhanced driver assessment package.
