Uber has now confirmed to BBC Scotland News it has officially lodged an application to operate in Aberdeen.

It said that, if granted, it would give passengers “greater transport options around the city, support the local economy and provide new earning opportunities for drivers”.

Uber connects passengers to drivers via an app which uses GPS technology to locate available taxis.

The transport giant already operates in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Aberdeen City Council said it was not able to comment on live applications.
