We're clueless on Uber until we track every ride - Eric Adams
« on: September 06, 2018, 11:26:48 AM »

I've been an evangelist for disruptive technology. Innovation is a good thing, and government has been behind the curve in understanding how it can improve a stagnant marketplace and society at large.

As Brooklyn's borough president, I have welcomed disruptors willing to operate on an even playing field with the businesses that have been contributing to our communities for decades. To that end, it is government's responsibility to create effective regulatory structures for them.

The City Council last month passed legislation to better regulate app-based vehicle services such as Juno, Lyft, Uber and Via. The operators have revolutionized the transportation industry in New York City, but government needs to assess whether they are effectively filling the role many have expected of them in areas where yellow taxis have historically been absent: outer-borough neighborhoods and communities of color. We need to inspect what we expect, and the best way to do that is to mandate every for-hire vehicle has the data-reporting technology required in yellow and green taxis.
