Wow, I have been wondering for a while when this would start to happen. I wonder how this will all go down. What drivers get to stay and which lose their jobs?

"New York City officials are moving to cap the number of vehicles driving for Uber and other ride-hailing services as part of an aggressive move to address mounting concerns that their explosive growth has led to worsening congestion and low driver wages."

    It's a full cycle.  They will put another medallion system in place.  Great.... I hope they do it right this time.  The biggest mistake was that they made it transferrable and sellable last time.

      well, not in NYC, right?  there are a set number of medallions nad like 13K taxicabs. Always consistent.  They will get a reprieve.  

      It's very interesting to see what the rules will be on who gets the approval to drive those rideshares.  TLC has been making moves...

    Finally! The traffic congestion has gotten out of control. Over half the rideshare vehicles don't even have passengers in them! It is ridiculous.

    This is a big play, can they do this to Uber/Lyft/Juno etc? I am not sure of the legalize but I would think it would be hard to tell who can drive around in their own car and who cannot.

      They will work with Uber to create some system as to the amount of drivers that can be logged in at any one moment.
