Over the past three days, nearly 10,000 Houston residents and visitors have signed a petition demanding that Mayor Parker and the City Council make way for modern transportation options like Uber.
And how has the city responded? The City Attorney has issued a cease and desist order against its own constituents. That’s right, the City of Houston has demanded that Houstonians stop emailing the Mayor and the City Council.
In 2013, Houston was named America’s next great global city. Unfortunately, a lack of modern transportation options are handcuffing that future. To truly become a global city, Houston needs global transportation options like Uber.
