Gov. Andrew Cuomo is proposing that New York state allow ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.
The ride-sharing services have been trying unsuccessfully to expand to areas outside of New York City. Upstate and parts of Long Island are among the last places in the country not to have access to companies like Uber and Lyft.
Cuomo, in a State of the State speech in Buffalo, said that it’s time that changed, calling it an “unfair duality.”
“If it makes sense for downstate, it makes sense for upstate,” Cuomo said.
