As New York City is proposing a cap on ride-hail vehicles and a minimum wage for its drivers, San Francisco is agitating for the power to regulate the number of ride-hail vehicles on its own streets.
Tom Maguire, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s director of sustainable streets, says his agency is concerned with reports suggesting that ride-hailing services are moving riders off mass transit and clogging up roads. Right now, though, the authority to do anything about it sits with the California Public Utilities Commission, a state-level agency.
