Following the news about the cancellation of Ola's operational licence in London, the Bengaluru-based ride-hailing company has now told carandbike that it will be appealing against the decision soon. The company says that while London's public transport authority, Transport for London (TfL), did refuse to grant it a new private hire vehicle (PHV) operator's licence, the decision accords Ola the opportunity to appeal against it, which it will exercise. In the meantime, Ola says, that its operations will continue as usual, including cab services.

Ola claims that it proactively told TfL of its failings, including breaches of its licensing regime, which led to unlicensed drivers and vehicles undertaking more than 1,000 passenger trips on the platform's behalf. Ola also said that it will cooperate with the authorities to sort this issue, and all the problems with the platform have been corrected and the company is confident this can be demonstrated on appeal.
