NYTLC Approves Accountability Rules For TNCs

Posted on November 20, 2014

NEW YORK -- The Taxi and Limousine Commission voted unanimously Nov. 20 to pass the for-hire vehicle accountability rules including the mandate that car service companies submit trip logs and data to the TLC — a mandate that only Uber argued against during the hearing.

Josh Mohrer, who is being investigated by the company for allegations that he violated the company’s privacy policy and did not attend the hearing today, argued at the initial public hearing that submitting trip data to the TLC would open up that information to FOIA requests and in turn could violate Uber users’ privacy.

Lyft, on the other hand, told the TLC they had no problem with submitting its trip data. The trip data, however, would only include information about pick-up location, the data and time, and the dispatching and affiliated bases. No personal information about passengers will be included.
