Chicago Could Be Next to Cap Number of Ride-Hailing Vehicles
"Two Chicago aldermen are considering capping the number of ride-share vehicles driving for services like Uber and Lyft," reports Mary Wisniewski.
Ald. Anthony Beale, 9th, along with Ald. Edward Burke, 14th, are leading the legislative charge, citing congestion and better pay for drivers as reasons to cap the number of vehicles.
"The number of ride-share vehicles in Chicago has quadrupled in the last three years, to nearly 66,000, according to city data," adds Wisniewski.
