Unshackle Upstate Lauds Senate Passage of Upstate Ride-Hailing, Calls on Assembly to Act

Posted: Feb 6th, 2017

“Allowing ride-hailing services to operate in Upstate communities is long overdue and we thank the members of the Senate who voted in support of this proposal.
Services like Uber and Lyft will provide Upstate residents and visitors with a safe, reliable transportation option that is already available in New York City and 47 states. 
Providing Upstate drivers with an opportunity to earn income on a schedule that works for them is a win-win that everyone should support.
Upstate ride-hailing is supported by Governor Cuomo, the Senate and millions of New Yorkers. It’s time for the Assembly to get on board and pass this bill.”
