London Refuses To Renew Ride-Hailing Firm Ola's Operating License Over Safety Issues

International Business Times

Transport for London, or TfL, the agency that governs the transport system for Greater London, has denied Indian-based ride-hailing app Ola a license to operate in the city, citing safety concerns. TfL, which regulates London's taxi and private hire forms of transport, said it discovered a "number of failures" at Ola that "could have risked public safety." Such failures included the hiring of unlicensed drivers and unlicensed vehicles; as well as a failure to promptly bring these issues to TfL's attention when first identified. Ola has been operating in London since February 2020. Ola was initially granted a 15-month license on July 4, 2019, which expired on Saturday.

Imagine you just wrapped up a busy day at work and are rushing to pick up your child from day care. You call for an Uber, but the driver never arrives and doesn't answer your calls. Pressed for time, you cancel the ride and find alternative transportation. Turns out many people have experienced similar situations. While innovative, these services still battle age-old problems of socioeconomic and racial discrimination.
