Uber facing questions over how it knew Transport for London boss used app
The former London transport commissioner Sir Peter Hendy has questioned whether Uber unlawfully accessed his journey records after the Guardian revealed leaked company files contained a reference to trips he had taken on the app.
Hendy’s name was included on an “outreach grid” of Uber’s key lobbying targets, including Boris Johnson, the then mayor of London, contained in the Uber files.
The files also reveal how a senior London employee used a surveillance tool codenamed “Heaven” and “God View” to track the journey of a colleague. The app allowed Uber staff to monitor movements of people travelling in an Uber vehicle.
