Lane Changer for Upstate

Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft will become legal in upstate New York this summer, but what will this actually mean for consumers?

He also provided background on the unique circumstances that made ride-hailing possible in New York City and highlighted the challenges of serving rural communities.

Bonus: If you listen carefully you might learn the difference between ride-hailing and ride-sharing services!
