Uber ready to make concessions to reverse London license decision-paper

LONDON, Sept 23 (Reuters) - U.S. taxi firm Uber is prepared to make concessions in order to reverse a decision by London authorities not to renew the companys license in the city, a newspaper reported.

The Sunday Times said the concessions were likely to involve passenger safety and benefits for Ubers drivers, possibly limits on working hours to improve road safety and holiday pay.

"While we havent been asked to make any changes, wed like to know what we can do," Tom Elvidge, Uber's general manager in London, told the newspaper. "But that requires a dialog we sadly havent been able to have recently."

The Sunday Times quoted sources close to London's transport body as saying the move was encouraging and suggested the possibility of talks. (Writing by William Schomberg; Editing by Marguerita Choy)
