In December, the Orlando City Council voted to enact ridesharing regulations with the goal of creating a home for Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) like Uber in Orlando. Unfortunately, while the City took the right step in developing a regulatory framework for ridesharing, the bill in its current form simply doesn’t work.
In 2014, Florida is on pace to become the third most populous state in the country. But the state’s current transportation ecosystem simply isn’t able to keep up. Millions of residents and visitors don’t have access to efficient, reliable and modern transportation options. If the Sunshine State truly intends to thrive as a destination that fosters innovation and economic growth, its leaders should stand up for more, better, global transportation options like Uber.
A city as fast, classy, and modern as Miami needs a variety of transportation options to match. Sign the petition to bring Uber to Miami!
