Thanks to your support, Virginia, Uber now has a permanent home in the Commonwealth.
DC Council passed the Vehicle-for-Hire Innovation Act - providing a permanent home for ridesharing in the District.
Just when I thought we were out of the woods, the DCTC (DC Taxi Commission) has pulled us right back in. New regulations passed last week are unprecedented and far more restrictive than Uber has seen in any of the 30 cities that we operate in.
This morning we were surprised again by the action plan of DCTC Commissioner Ron Linton. We woke up to the news that the Commissioner held a pseudo-sting operation to ticket and impound the vehicle of one of our driver-partners, without stating which statutes Uber has violated. DCist covered the story.
