Save uberX in Illinois!
Legislators in Springfield are being asked to approve protectionist legislation that would limit YOUR access to high quality, low cost transportation in Chicago, destroy the equivalent of thousands of jobs, and effectively shut down uberX in Chicago.

FOR uberX IN ILLINOIS[/button]
Special interest groups, powered by the taxi industry, have forced through a bill sponsored by State Representative Mike Zalewski. The transportation needs of Chicago residents are being pre-empted by special interests, behind closed doors, more than two hours away from the neighborhoods that desperately need cheaper, higher quality, and more reliable transportation options.
Simply put, after failing to bend the City of Chicago to their will, taxi companies have sought support in Springfield in a desperate attempt to stifle competition, protect their monopoly, and remove your access to additional transportation options that are reliable, safe and affordable.
We’ve attempted to work with legislators down state with no success – this is not a compromise bill. This is Springfield taking away transportation options from Chicago consumers, and harming the local economy.
