Your Call: Regulating ride-hailing

Jun 15, 2017


We’re following up on our conversation about regulating the ride-hailing industry.

Last week drivers for Uber, Lyft, and cabs shared their experiences and perspectives about where policies ought to go next. This week we’ll look at the current regulatory landscape, how cities are trying to influence the way car services operate in their jurisdiction, and how constituents can voice their views.
