LONDON (Reuters) - Uber said it would challenge a decision by London’s transport regulator on Friday to strip it of its license to operate from the end of the month.

Transport for London said Uber, whose license expires on Sept. 30, would be allowed to continue to operate while the appeals process was exhausted.

“Transport for London and the Mayor have caved in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice,” Uber said in a statement. “We intend to immediately challenge this in the courts.”
