Love or hate Uber, they have a way of making the news around the country almost daily. Now comes this story from Pennsylvania where Uber is making progress.
The State Public Utility Commission voted 4-1 to allow Uber X to serve most of the state except Philadelphia and a few counties. Uber’s Black and SUV drivers have had limo licenses for the past couple years so they are not affected.
This is a huge win for Uber. As I have said in previous posts, it has always been the tech company’s plan to get state laws in place rather than having to fight it out with each city where they want to operate. No doubt Uber will use this Commission vote to serve as a model plan they want to introduce around the country. With some tweaking, of course. After all, Uber is a technology company, not a taxi service. J
