Raise App Driver Payment Rates & Yellow/Green Meter to:
Base Fare $3.30; $3/mile; 60c/minute slow traffic and Require 80% to ALL App Drivers!
Exempt Yellow & Green Cabs from Congestion Pricing!
Debt Relief program for Medallion Owner-Drivers: Waive 2019 Tax Stamp fee, waive 20% of outstanding medallion loans, lower the interest so more goes towards the principal payment and requirement mortgages cannot be more than 20%^ of gross fares (after tax/tolls/tips)
If Uber charges the passenger more than these rates under Upfront Pricing, then driver must get 80% of the higher fare.
Set Minimum App Fare so that drivers cannot make below $10 on any trip.
Cap on FHV Vehicle Finance + Lease (same as we won for yellow cabs in 2012!) of $350 per week cap for weekly leases; $275 per week for lease to buy financing (and no more than $42,900 in total)
Retirement + Benefits For All Drivers!
