A deal brokered by Seattle Mayor Ed Murray would lift a cap on the number of rideshare cars allowed on the road at one time.
The Seattle City Council-imposed restrictions were lifted after the three Seattle rideshare companies — Uber, Lyft and Sidecare — delivered more than double the required amount of signatures to petition for a referendum.
A Seattle City Council vote regulating popular app-based rideshare companies has been postponed until March 17. The vote was originally scheduled for next Monday.
Seattle cab drivers say new ride sharing programs are taking away business and they want the city to level the playing field. They say the city is allowing ride share companies like Sidecar and Lyft to operate illegally.
