Uber has been granted a new five-year licence to operate in Sheffield following a temporary suspension.

The city’s council suspended the ride hailing app’s licence in November after being unable to receive a response from the company regarding its management. However, as City AM reports, fresh discussions have now allowed for the renewal of Uber’s licence.

Fred Jones, head of UK cities at Uber, told the newspaper, “This decision is good news for drivers and passengers who use our app in Sheffield and follows recent licence renewals in cities including Cambridge, Nottingham, and Leicester.

“We’re pleased the council has recognised the changes Uber has made under our new leadership and look forward to working with them on shared aims like improving air quality and tackling congestion.”

The decision comes during discussions for Uber to continue to operate in London.
