The Uber delay continues. Last Thursday was expected to end the back and forth with a city council vote, unfortunately after six long hours of conversation between city commissioners and representatives of Uber and Lyft (a similar ride-share program) the only thing that was decided was to delay the vote even longer. As it stands, a work session is scheduled for April 21st, at which time city commissioners will further discuss the topic.

Representatives of well know taxi companies voiced their opinions Thursday, accusing Uber of getting special treatment. Uber has agreed to follow the specific regulations previously placed on the company but particular issues such as disability accommodations, insurance and licensing continue to come onto the table.

While the work session has been scheduled, a final vote date has yet to be determined. Read more about Thursday’s city council meeting here.
