New York City caps Uber, Lyft after taxi drivers’ losses

The Big Apple is limiting number of ride-sharing cars on streets after years of traditional taxi drivers complaining they can not earn a living due to competition.

New York City has become the latest city to reassess its relationship with ride-sharing apps.

The US city has placed a limit on the number of ride-sharing cars on its streets and stopped issuing new licences for ride-sharing cars.

For years, traditional taxi drivers have complained that they can not earn a living, as the likes of Uber and Lyft have grown in size.
