Uber has launched its appeal over Transport for London's decision not to renew its private hire operator licence.
"While we have today filed our appeal so that Londoners can continue using our app, we hope to continue having constructive discussions with Transport for London. As our new CEO has said, we are determined to make things right," an Uber spokesperson told Digital Spy.
According to a judicial office spokesman, the hearing is likely to take place on December 11.
Uber London Limited's licence expired on September 30, but it has been allowed to continue operating while it appeals the decision and until it has "exhausted" any appeal processes, with this new development meaning it'll operate in London for the foreseeable future.
Back in September, TfL took the decision that the company was "not fit and proper" to hold a London licence, on the grounds of what it described as Uber's "approach to reporting serious criminal offences" and "how medical certificates are obtained".
"TfL considers that Uber's approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications," TfL said in a statement.
At the time, Tom Elvidge, General Manager of Uber in London, told Digital Spy in a statement that 3.5 million Londoners who use the app and more than 40,000 licensed drivers would be "astounded" by TfL's decision.
Following the original decision, Uber released an open letter apologising for mistakes it's made and promising to "change".
