Dinolfo Urges NYS Legislature To Support Bills Allowing Transportation Network Companies To Operate In Upstate New York

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo authored a letter to the local New York State Legislature delegation urging the adoption bills A6090 and S4280 which amend New York State insurance law, vehicle and traffic law, general municipal law and transportation law, as they relate to Transportation Network Companies (TNCs), which will allow ride-sharing services such as Lyft and Uber to operate in Monroe County and Upstate New York.

“Ride-sharing services provided by TNCs like Lyft and Uber have proven to be successful in many regions of the country. After observing these successes, I believe there are several benefits that TNCs would provide the residents, families and businesses in Monroe County,” said Dinolfo. “As the current legislative session comes to a close, I urge our State Representatives to bring these bills to the floor and adopt them as soon as possible.”

Benefits cited in the letter include providing flexible job opportunities for residents and families who are vetted and approved as drivers, providing accessible and affordable transportation for consumers, assisting in the reduction of impaired driving, and reducing traffic congestion and air pollution.

The New York State Legislature is expected to vote on the bills before the current legislative session ends this Thursday, June 16.
