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.

Numerous new practices directly address concerns cited by Transport for London and other regulators as part of their withdrawal of the firm's private hire operator licences around the country.

It said it took the decision on the grounds of "public safety and security implications".

"Over the last few years we've led the way with pioneering technology which enhances safety, like GPS tracking of every trip and our two-way rating system".

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.

"The private hire market is unrecognisable from when current legislation was introduced", said Helen Chapman, TfL's interim director of licensing, regulation and charging.

"We're determined to change the way we do business, so we'll carry on listening and plan to make other improvements over the coming months", said Tom Elvidge, general manager of Uber in the United Kingdom, in a statement. 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. Uber appealed the decision, but Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi vowed to work with city officials to make the necessary changes that were needed to get its license back.
