Uber is courting one of its oldest foes, the London black-cab driver, as it looks to add a new taxi option to its fleet in the UK capital next year. San Francisco-based Uber has begun inviting London black-cab drivers to register for its planned new service, despite continued opposition to the ride-hailing company from the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association, which represents about two-thirds of London’s 15,000 cabbies.
