Bulgaria: Uber Boss to Hold Talks with TfL on London Licence pixabay.com

Uber's new chief executive will meet London's transport commissioner later to discuss the firm losing its licence, reported BBC. 

Dara Khosrowshahi is meeting Mike Brown, who runs Transport for London, which has criticised the firm's record over reporting criminal offences and carrying out driver background checks.

Uber has apologised for "mistakes" and said it could make concessions.

Uber's licence expired on Saturday but its drivers can continue to operate in the capital while it pursues an appeal.

TfL said Mr Brown was holding the talks with the taxi-hailing app firm's global chief executive following an approach from the company and at London Mayor Sadiq Khan's request.

The regulator decided not to renew Uber's London licence last month after it deemed the firm "unfit" to run a taxi service.

An Uber spokesman said the firm had yet to file an appeal, but the company has indicated it will do so before a 13 October deadline.

The meeting comes as Mr Khosrowshahi faces pressure in the US over former Uber boss Travis Kalanick's influence over the company's board.

Mr Kalanick, who is still one of the firm's biggest shareholders, appointed two new directors in a surprise move on Friday.
