The legal saga surrounding ridesharing companies continues as New York City becomes the first of its kind in the U.S. to halt new vehicle licenses for ride-hail app services such as Uber and Lyft, while it sets a minimum wage. The legislation, passed with virtually no opposition by the City Council, caps the number of for-hire vehicles for a year, giving the city time to thoroughly study this booming industry and create more permanent ordinances.
