Uber Is the New Airbnb

Uber, Lyft, and similar car-sharing services are facing a raft of proposed regulations. The companies have earned devoted followings since their smartphone-ordered rides first hit the scene.

Nobody is expecting local communities to copy the ban on Uber that Berlin just implemented, but California legislators have been considering bills that would require permits for some carriers that work with Uber and Lyft, as well as require clarification of insurance coverage.

Meanwhile, the Examiner reports that city taxi drivers are hoping to unionize and thereby increase their clout in union-friendly City Hall.
