Dear North East Lincolnshire Council,

I’m Pinar Bilgin. I’m a PhD student at the Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds. I’m studying the impacts of ride-hailing services (such as Uber) on different transport modes in the UK. Under the Freedom of Information Act/Environmental Information Regulations, I would like to request the following information:
1) Are any of the following ride-hailing service providers operating in your Local Authority?
• Uber
• OLA
• Bolt
2) If yes, are they operating with or without a license issued by your Local Authority?
3) When did they first start to operate (launch date) in this Local Authority?
4) Do they continue operating in this Local Authority? If no, when did they stop operating in this Local Authority?
5) Since their first start date, have any operators had their licence suspended? If so, when?

Your prompt response would be highly appreciated.
Thank you very much.

Yours faithfully,

Pinar Bilgin
