Impose fees on us to help out struggling cabbies — Uber CEO

Impose fees on us to help out struggling cabbies — Uber CEO

New York City has suspended the license of an Uber driver who kicked two women out of his car after they kissed.

One clear indicator of the uphill battle facing drivers is the declining value of the "medallions", or permits, required of taxi owners in New York and some other large cities.

In the most recent case, yellow cab owner-driver Yu Mein Chow was found floating in the East River last month.

But Iovine said that was not true.

But both Iovine and Pichl say they kissed once, and were not touching inappropriately.

And if they did so in the past few years, they turned out to have horrific timing.

In video posted to Iovine's Facebook page, you hear the women asking the driver, "What's the issue?"

"You don't do that here in the car".

"Kissing is not illegal", one of the women responds. It said it is investigating. He later added, "It's disrespectful".

Ahmad El Boutari was barred from using the the ride-hailing app Tuesday after telling Alex Iovine and her girlfriend Emma Pichl that their embrace was 'illegal'. According to a screenshot of his profile, provided to CNN by Pichl, he had a 4.67 rating and received dozens of commendations on the app for "excellent service".

The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission branded his homophobia 'ridiculous'. El Boutari told the New York Daily News that he was uncomfortable with the couple's behaviour in his car on the whole, not just with the kiss.

'We would never try to upset someone in their own car'.

In 2011, city officials under then-mayor Michael Bloomberg had selected the Nissan NV200 model as an eventual replacement for the huge fleet of New York taxis. "We were going back and forth trying to understand".

"Uber does not tolerate any form of discrimination, and we have been in touch with the rider regarding her experience", Hendrick said.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said of Elbotari (and others who act similarly), "I think they don't belong driving period".

"This is an open society and Uber is a platform that is available to anybody regardless of your background, your orientation, and that is sacred to us", Khosrowshahi told the NY Post. "It's an unfortunate circumstance and we will do everything we can for that not to repeat". "Normally private, they say they now plan to attend the city's June 24 Pride parade, which celebrates the LGBTQ community".

But find me another entrepreneurial venture in which the disrupters ultimately decide to take up some kind of collection for the disrupted.
