    THE SITUATION



    Mayor de Blasio and members of the City Council are supporting a bill that would cap Uber in New York City. This means that wait times for Uber rides would double or even triple, and more than 10,000 New Yorkers would lose job opportunities overnight.

    TELL MAYOR DE BLASIO & CITY COUNCIL TO OPPOSE THIS BILL AND SAVE UBER AS WE KNOW IT!
    Here's what you need to know -- the Council's proposal (Bill 842) is bad for riders, drivers and New York City:

    • Riders would experience less reliable service in the form of longer wait times and higher prices. Services like uberPOOL would also suffer, potentially reversing any traction gained on using carpool rideshare options to target congestion.
    • Drivers would experience a significant decrease in earning potential — 10,000 expected new jobs would evaporate, and countless New Yorkers who have come to rely on the Uber platform for income would face an uncertain future.
    • New York overall would not see reduction in congestion from capping for-hire vehicles using Uber but instead would halt progress made through technological innovation over the past few years. Uber’s technology has helped expand service to those who were previously underserved, providing a safe and reliable transportation option to all New Yorkers while looking to a future with fewer cars on the roads — not more.
    • The Council’s proposal would cap the number of new vehicles associated with Uber to 201 in all of New York City for an entire year, under the guise of studying traffic congestion. Of the 25 other transportation studies listed on the City’s website, not one required a simultaneous freeze on the subject being studied.

    ###

    Dear [Recipient's title] [Recipient's name],

    As your constituent and a supporter of Uber, I urge you to oppose Bill 842 which would cap for-hire vehicles on services like Uber in New York City.

    The proposed legislation would double or even triple wait times for Uber rides, and would make it much tougher for those in the outer boroughs to get safe rides through Uber at all. The bill will also strip away job opportunities for thousands of New Yorkers who are eager to earn an honest living.

    I understand that congestion in the city is something that needs to be addressed, but I believe that technology like uberPOOL - where people going in the same direction can share their rides - can offer a solution on that problem.

    Please do not support this misguided legislation. Your constituents are counting on you to save the Uber we know and love in NYC.

    Thank you.
