Miami-Dade Officials Voting Today On Limo, Taxi Rules Overhaul

Posted on November 13, 2013

MIAMI -- The stakes are high for Wednesday afternoon, when a group of Miami-Dade County commissioners will hold key votes that could upend the taxicab and car-service industries.

One measure is the most controversial. It would deregulate the car-service industry — which includes Town Cars, black sedans and limousines — to allow an unlimited number of drivers. That would benefit Uber, the San Francisco startup popular in dozens of big cities, which is pushing for the change in Miami-Dade. The company has launched a campaign to rally its supporters, including celebrities, in advertising, social media and online petitions intended to show that plenty of people want the high-end ride service in Miami.
