Uber re-applies for licence to operate in Aberdeen Published Date: 29/04/2024

The BBC reported that Uber was previously granted permission to launch in the city in 2018, but later surrendered its licence.

Uber has reportedly confirmed to BBC Scotland News it has officially lodged an application to operate in Aberdeen.

It said that, if granted, it would give passengers "greater transport options around the city, support the local economy and provide new earning opportunities for drivers".

Uber connects passengers to drivers via an app which uses GPS technology to locate available taxis.

The transport giant already operates in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Aberdeen City Council said it was not able to comment on live applications.
