Ola failed to renew licence to operate its ride sharing services in London after not meeting public safety requirements stipulated by London transportation regulator Transport for London (TfL).
Ola specifically failed to meet requirements for licensing related to drivers and vehicles and plans to appeal TfL’s decision, Tech Crunch reported.
This comes just days after competitor Uber regained its licence to ply in London for another year-and-a-half (18 months).
TfL said Ola had over 1,000 trips made by unlicensed drivers. The company has 21 days to appeal the decision and can continue operations in the meantime.
