Dara Khosrowshahi, the new chief executive of Uber, will meet with TfL's transport commissioner on Oct. 3 to discuss the decision to strip the company of its licence in the city.

"Following an approach from Uber, and at the Mayor's request, London's Transport Commissioner will meet with Uber's global CEO in London next Tuesday," A TfL Spokesperson said.

TfL claimed last week that Uber was not "fit and proper" to hold a licence. It accused the company of "a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications."

After TfL's announcement, Khosrowshahi wrote an open letter to the city, promising to listen to the local community as he writes the company's next chapter.

"On behalf of everyone at Uber globally, I apologise for the mistakes we've made," he said.
