45,000 Uber and Lyft drivers are currently working in the city. By correlation, an unimportant 1,800 cab drivers cover a similar turf. A national investigation of activity evaluated that San Franciscans spend an additional 37 minutes every day stuck in movement, a number that has been consistently ascending since 2008.
The recording likewise requests that the CPUC direct a full ecological audit of the impact of riding-hailing organizations. Principally, notwithstanding, the documenting manages the capacity of ride-sharing drivers to utilize rental vehicles to carry out their occupation. Thusly, SFMTA needs those drivers directed like limo drivers.
“Presently, if TNC drivers can basically lease or rent a vehicle exclusively with the end goal of accommodating contract transportation, any refinement that may have existed amongst TNCs and other sanction party bearers in light of the way that TNC drivers work vehicles got for individual utilize as opposed to vehicles acquired exclusively or essentially for business purposes has been killed,” SFMTA composes.
“Therefore, the reason for applying distinctive guidelines to limousines than are connected to TNCs does not exist anymore.” The strain over apparently remiss standards for ride-sharing organizations is just the same old thing new. For quite a while, cab drivers have griped that organizations like Uber and Lyft work under far weaker controls. Not at all like taxicabs, are which directed on the city level, Uber and Lyft guidelines are set at the state level.
Flywheel Taxi, a San Francisco-based taxicab organization, documented suit against the California Public Utilities Commission a year ago over its direction of Uber and Lyft. Flywheel guaranteed that the CPUC did not hold Uber and Lyft to an indistinguishable guidelines from customary cabs.
