Take Back Control of Our Streets
In the last few years, Uber and other ride-share companies have congested Manhattan streets, deprived passengers in wheelchairs from receiving meaningful service, and decimated the lives of immigrant taxi drivers and their families. Several taxi drivers have tragically committed suicide, finding it too difficult to compete with the bullying influence of multi-billion-dollar Silicon Valley mega-corporations.
The ride-share sector in New York City has grown from 40,000 vehicles just a few years ago to a whopping 110,000 vehicles today, and is widely blamed by independent traffic engineers for the sharp increase in congestion in New York City.
As a result of this bold new proposed legislation, New Yorkers will sit in less traffic, air quality will improve, wheelchair users will get more service, and drivers for both taxi and for-hire-vehicles will receive fairer incomes.
The City Council’s reform package brings long overdue regulation to the rideshare industry - just like yellow and green taxis.
