Too Many Ubers? Chicago Could Cap The Number Of Rideshare Vehicles

From 2015 to 2018, the number of vehicles in Chicago providing four or more trips per month jumped from around 15,000 to around 65,000. They provide convenience for commuters, a source of revenue for drivers, and often operate in neighborhoods where cabs don’t. But that’s a lot of additional cars on Chicago’s already-congested roads. Chicago Tribune’s Mary Wisniewski talks about the give-and-take of ridesharing, and  the aldermen who are proposing caps on rideshare vehicles.
