uberX Riders – We Need Your Help!

The Illinois State Senate is voting on a bill that would make it impossible for uberX to survive in the form you know and rely on.

The City of Chicago has worked diligently on a comprehensive set of rideshare regulations that will be voted on May 28th. Taxi companies have taken their fight to state lawmakers to protect their business.

Do you like convenient, safe, affordable transit? Don’t let the State Senate, under pressure from the taxi owners, protect the interests of the few and take away YOUR transportation options.

Let your State Senator know that you oppose this bill
and that they should vote against it!

Uber already carries significantly higher insurance coverage than taxis, but HB 4075 would impose insurance requirements that drive costs to consumers up, without adding additional protection for riders. Additionally, thousands of rideshare drivers would be forced off the road for administrative procedures that do not add additional safety measures for riders or drivers. In short, the bill usurps a city’s ability to regulate its own transportation solutions, drives costs for ridesharing higher, and puts thousands of drivers out of a job for extended periods of time.

Thanks for your support,
Team Uber Chicago
