TOP Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on the...

"Today begins the launch of ride sharing in every corner of New York, bringing with it new economic opportunities, jobs and a cost-effective transportation alternative. For far too long, Upstate and Long Island residents unfairly faced artificial barriers that denied them access to these services, which was an unacceptable affront to the spirit of innovation that drives New York. I'm proud that this wrong has been righted and that a fair, safe and comprehensive ride sharing system has been put in place that benefits New Yorkers in every corner of this great state."
