Peskin targets Uber and Lyft tax

District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin will place a ballot measure before voters in November 2019 that would raise $30 million a year from a new tax on transportation network companies such as Lyft and Uber. The money would fund transportation infrastructure projects and public transit initiatives, such as the Embarcadero Enhancement Project. In a recent report to constituents, Peskin said, “By working with the companies to develop a mutually agreeable revenue source, we hope to fund improvements to bike and pedestrian infrastructure, as well as Muni, to get people out of private cars and keep S.F. moving.”
