New York city Mayor puts rule over limiting the number of drivers, Uber sues city laws
Uber Technologies Inc. is taking New York City to court for new rules.
Juno USA LP and Lyft Inc sued the city transportation commission about the implementation of minimum pay rule for drivers.
Uber has reported a loss of $1.8 Billion in 2018.
New York government has made a major decision of capping number of drivers allowed on Street of Uber. Uber Technologies Inc. is taking New York City to court against this law. Officials of New York City justified by saying they took such decision to reduce Uber drivers to reduce congestion. In the suit filed by Uber, It said the city doesn’t have evidence to prove the claim. Uber also claimed that “Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t intend to review ongoing congestion reports on their merits and instead has already decided to perpetually narrow the number of drivers in the city. He is treating the business unfairly.”
Uber wrote in the complaint, New York is substituting the state authority to the led the number of professional drivers on road.
Mayor against the suit of Uber told that “No legal challenge reforms the fact that Uber made congestion on our roads worse and paid their drivers less than a living wage, The city new laws aims to alter that.”
Expansion of business in one of the world’s biggest transportation market is crucial for Uber. Uber has reported slow quarterly growth rate with a loss of $1.8 Billion in 2018. The company is focusing to have a public hearing in the middle of this year.
Present laws of New York City bring a confrontational relationship between the city and global technology giants. 15 days before another ride-hailing startup, Juno USA LP and Lyft Inc sued the city transportation commission about the implementation of minimum pay rule for drivers. Airbnb Inc. and other home-rental firms are against the city in court over their demand that they turn over renter data.
In Uber’s proceeding, the company said the limit obsoletes many drivers of being able to reap the rewards of the minimum pay guarantee the city separately imposed. Uber also appealed to New Yorkers’ baffle with public transportation in an apparent bid to garner support. According to the complaint, the subway system “has long been over capacity, underfunded and poorly looked up, and its defects disproportionately affect lower-income neighborhoods and areas with substantial minority populations.”
The case is filed at Zehn-NY LLC v. The city of New York, Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County.
