A Not So Peachy Georgia
Last week, Representative Alan Powell introduced anti-consumer legislation that is trying to limit your choice in transportation – and the economic opportunity that comes along with it for drivers. This legislation was introduced just two weeks after we learned that taxi companies have been scheming with the city of Atlanta – on city property – to find ways to shut down Uber. We were shocked too.
HB #907 is a direct attack on Atlanta consumers and drivers. Uber empowers consumers with seamless, affordable and reliable options for transportation, not limitations. This bill is trying to eliminate those options as you know them, throw innovation out the window, and go back to the old way of doing things. Make no mistake, this bill neither improves safety nor improves efficiency.
Uber is revolutionizing the way tens of thousands of Atlantans seamlessly connect with their city and the way thousands of drivers have increased their earnings. We are going to stand up on behalf of those riders and drivers – and for the future of Atlanta.
