You can bother them in person.  Taxi Workers Alliance will be there, on Broadway outside the Council, everyday from 10am to 6pm until the City Council acts.  Come for an hour whenever you can.  The council members walk past all day long.  You can encourage them and the Speaker to do the right thing.

Ruben Diaz Sr., the chair of the newly-formed City Council Committee on For-Hire Vehicles, is reportedly waiting on the green light from City Council Speaker Corey Johnson to vote on a package of bills that would bring tighter regulation to the app-based companies. That legislation would create restrictions on the companies' bases, a prohibition on drivers working for more than one app-based service, and a $2,000 yearly license fee for all app-based vehicles. (Johnson did not immediately respond to an inquiry from Gothamist).
