London: Ride-hailing major Ola will appeal against the decision of Transport for London (TfL) to not renew its licence due to public safety concerns
Ola said that it will continue its operations in London despite failing to get its licence renewed by the city's transport regulator. Under the rules, a company is allowed to operate while appealing the decision of TfL.
The India-based ride-hailing major which began operating in London in February believes that it has corrected all the issues raised by the regulator and hopes to demonstrate them on appeal.
Ola was told by TfL that the company was found not "fit and proper" to hold a private hire operator's licence, Sky News reported on Sunday.
Besides, London, Ola operates in several other UK cities including Birmingham and Coventry.
Ola's rival Uber last week won a legal battle over its London licence as a judge ruled in favour of the ride-hailing major, while overturning a ban on the app by the city's transport regulator.
Uber London Limited brought the appeal against the decision of TfL last year not to renew its London private hire vehicle operator's licence over passenger safety concerns.
