Your Call: Taxi, Uber, and Lyft drivers discuss regulations

Jun 8, 2017

  

We’ll have a conversation with ride-hailing drivers, from taxis to Uber about how the industry ought to be regulated.

On Monday, San Francisco subpoenaed Uber and Lyft records to investigate the companies’ practices providing service to poor neighborhoods and whether drivers create unsafe road conditions. The companies have also come under fire for their use of independent contractors and their impact on traffic.

We’ll open up the lines and invite drivers and passengers to share their perspectives.

Guests:

Kelly Desiant, a taxi driver in San Francisco

Ron Childress, a driver for Uber
