Manhattan Chamber Issues Statement on Proposed For-Hire Vehicle Cap

Tuesday, July 31, 2018

Statement from Jessica Walker, President and CEO, Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, on For-Hire Vehicle Cap:

"We desperately need to reduce traffic congestion in Manhattan, but an arbitrary cap on the number of for-hire vehicles would do very little to address the larger problem. Moreover this approach would limit transportation in underserved boroughs, reduce driver employment opportunities, and further damage New York City's reputation in the eyes of the innovators and tech entrepreneurs that create jobs."
