Evans Introduces Amendment Preserving Uber Operations | Transportation
From Andrew Huff: Councilmember Evans today introduced an amendment to the taxi modernization bill which explicitly allows Uber to continue to operate legally in the District without newly proposed price controls. The amendment was co-sponsored by Councilmembers Brown, Catania, and Wells. The measure passed.
“The Council must do all it can to support alternative transportation options in the District,” said Evans. “Uber offers an innovative service to all areas of the city, including those often underserved, and we should encourage and support them. It is also important to study the full landscape of transportation options, including taxis, and I am pleased that Councilmember Cheh is planning an additional hearing in the fall.”
