Your Opinion

How do you feel about the new ride-sharing company "Uber" coming into Portland and its request to have city code and & rules governing taxis be rewritten?

I'm in favor of Uber! Portland needs to get up to speed with a progressive taxi code like they have in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, London and other cities.
vote
Not so fast. Uber will put established, local cab drivers and their companies at a huge disadvantage. The city needs to respect the long-standing agreements with these companies.
