TNC process continues, with timeline
Friday, January 8, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano
Picking right up where things left off in December, City Council Member Ann Kitchen took to the City Council Message Board on Thursday to announce several meetings to further discuss regulations for transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft. Kitchen notes that while TNC regulations were approved during the final meeting of 2015, there are still some things to be determined. To that end, she has “confirmed the following process approach and timeline with Mayor (Steve) Adler” and suggests that any proposals be posted on the message board prior to Jan. 22. She goes on to suggest that the Jan. 26 work session contain a “discussion of sufficient duration to allow CMs the time to review, understand, discuss the language of proposals” prior to the Jan. 28 meeting, as well as “the approach to public input.”
