An Open Letter to Mayor Tim Ryan

On August 5, mayors of eight Broward County cities published a letter in the Sun Sentinel urging County Mayor Tim Ryan to take action and bring Uber back to Broward.

Read the letter below. Then email Mayor Ryan and urge him to bring Uber back.  

In your inaugural speech, Mayor Ryan, you said, “the most pressing issue before us today and in the coming years is how to meet the demands on our county’s transportation needs.” You were right, and now we’re calling on you to lead on the issue.

As mayors in Broward County, we intimately understand the needs of our constituents. And we all agree that transportation continues to be a great challenge our communities face.

The arrival of ridesharing options like Uber is a win-win. Ridesharing expands access to safe, reliable rides, provides job opportunities, and helps take drunk drivers off the road.

Across the country, policymakers are welcoming this innovation with modern, sensible regulatory frameworks for ridesharing. We must follow their lead. The people of Broward County have spoken; they want this service.

From mayor to mayor, we urge you to stand up for our communities and bring back options like Uber to Broward County.
