Coumo to Announce Uber And Lyft Plan For Upstate
There was a big push in 2016 to allow ridesharing apps like Uber and Lyft to service areas outside of New York City. Governor Cuomo is prepared to roll out a plan to allow ride-sharing apps to operate out of the New York City boundary. Taxi companies and the ride-sharing apps have been at odds ever since the proposal was laid out last year.
Cuomo's plan calls on the state to oversee and permit the popular ride-hailing companies, which operate in New York City under its taxi laws but have sought changes in state insurance law to expand to the rest of the state.
The governor is expected to highlight his proposal during his regional State of the State address Monday in Buffalo
Do you think ride sharing is necessary in the Capital region? A lot of people complain about the current taxis service, saying it is too expensive and don't service many areas.
