The ride-sharing economy – spearheaded by private-sector services like Uber and Lyft – has already transformed how people move around NYC. Given the incredible financial opportunity accruing to the benefit of private company shareholders, we believe it’s only fair that we ask these companies to do their part in creating a more livable and sustainable NYC. To that end, we will immediately institute an electric-vehicle only policy for all transit services, including Lyft and Uber. We will also be proposing congestion pricing as a mechanism to cut down vehicular traffic more broadly. Our goal is to make NYC an EV-only city by 2030.
