Uber plans to put forward further reasons for its appeal before a planned hearing on December 11.

"While we have today filed our appeal so that Londoners can continue using our app, we hope to continue having constructive discussions with Transport for London", Uber added on Friday.

London's transport authorities decided last month not to renew Uber's operating license, citing a lack of corporate responsibility.

Despite the decision from TfL, and Uber's licence expiring on 30 September, Londoners will still be able to hail Uber cars until the full legal process is finalised, which could take up to a year or more.

TfL said it took the decision on the grounds of "public safety and security implications".

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has held talks with London's transport agency in a bid to keep the service operational. In his open letter Khosrowshahi vowed to make things right with for Uber, so that it can still drive through the streets of London.

Uber has been used by 3.5 million Londoners, developing a loyal fan base by offering convenience and lower prices than traditional "Black Cabs".

His predecessor, Travis Kalanick, left the company following allegations that managers didn't adequately address reports of sexual harassment.
