Uber hopes to strike compromise to keep running in London
At the same time, it is preparing a legal appeal and rallying its users in London to build support. The ride-hailing company is pushing to meet the London regulator that on Friday said it would refuse to reissue Uber’s operating license there. The company circulated on online petition asking users to call on London to back down. Uber is likely to reach out to Transport for London as early as Monday to try to set up a meeting to help determine what the authority’s specific complaints are, and how Uber could resolve them, according to a person close to the company.
