Driver Divisions Grow Amid Philadelphia Protest

Posted on December 16, 2015


PHILADELPHIA -- Two groups of Philadelphia’s taxi drivers and limousine chauffeurs mounted a protest Dec. 16  around City Hall, joined by drivers from Uber Black. The drivers are protesting what they call the illegal operation in the city of transportation network companies, UberX and Lyft.

The Taxi Workers Alliance and the Philadelphia Limo Association are carrying out the protest, and have promised as many as 600 vehicles. Their demands include no more operation of UberX and Lyft for as long as they are illegal in Philadelphia, for the PPA and District Attorney to bring legal action against the services and for the mayor and City Council to do their part to stop their operation.
