YO1 Radio's Nightshift

Midnight - 6:00am

York taxi drivers are set to stage a protest while councillors decide whether to grant Uber a licence to operate in the city.

The demonstration is set to take place ahead of Uber’s application for a private hire licence which is being heard at York Council’s West Offices on Tuesday evening (June 11).

Association Chair Arfan Asif told the Local Democracy Reporting Service the gathering was a show of solidarity from drivers who are concerned about Uber’s re-entry into York.

It comes as the app-based ride hailing firm lodged its application to officially return with at least 91 vehicles following councillors’ refusal to renew its licence in 2017.

The refusal followed a significant data breach and 155 complaints against the firm in the year leading up to the decision in December 2017.
