Uber, Lyft In Upstate NY "Unlikely" This Year

Posted on June 17, 2016

The hang-up is a battle over the insurance rates required of the companies, its drivers and passengers -- pitting unions, insurance companies and trial lawyers against one another in a high-priced lobbying war. Taxi drivers also opposed the measure.

The expected outcome: gridlock.
