NYC court prevents pay raise for Uber and Lyft drivers

  • A court has prevented a rate hike that would have increased pay for New York City Uber and Lyft drivers.
  • Uber challenged the city’s Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) in December, claiming it used a flawed methodology to determine the per-minute and per-mile rate increases.
  • Manhattan state court Justice Arthur Engoron agreed with Uber’s challenge.
  • Engoron, a former taxi driver in his college days, argued that “It’s just not enough to say there’s inflation and 100 drivers said gas prices shot up”.
