United Trade Action Group Ltd, Regina (on The Application of) v Transport for London: Admn 6 Dec 2021

First, in Part 8 proceedings Uber, supported by Free Now, claims a declaration that an operator licensed under the 1998 Act who accepts a booking from a passenger is not required by the Act to enter as principal into a contractual obligation with the passenger to provide the journey in respect of that booking. In other words, Uber and Free Now say that Lord Leggatt’s suggestion in Uber v Aslam is wrong.
Second a challenge to the licensing terms of Free Now drivers.
