The Situation

To date, over a hundred thousand Florida residents and visitors have opened the Uber app to connect with a stylish ride, only to find their transportation needs can’t be met. Floridians want their leaders to stand up for innovation, not special interests. Uber in Florida means thousands of new well-paying jobs for local economies, and delivery of safe, convenient and seamless transportation alternatives. Here is what state legislation would do to open the state for Florida:

  • Eliminate minimum wait times for transportation. If you call for a town car, and it comes in 10 minutes, why should you have to wait another 50 minutes before you are legally allowed to enter the vehicle? Pre-arranging transportation more than hour in advance doesn’t protect consumer choice, it limits it.
  • Eliminate price controls. If you want to take a stylish ride down the road for drinks with friends, why should you have to pay $70 in Miami, $50 in Tampa or $35 in Orlando for that ride? Florida residents and visitors should not have to pay arbitrarily inflated fares for sedan rides that are up to 28 times the minimum fare of a taxi, even for a ride that is only 10 minutes long.
  • Eliminate artificial caps on vehicle licenses for sedans. Miami’s anti-competitive cap on sedans is the only one of its kind in the country. Most major cities have thousands of black cars; Miami-Dade County is limited to only 625! Why should one business have to shrink for another one to grow? Existing and aspiring small business owners should not be restricted from growing their businesses and increasing their economic opportunities. Transportation providers need more chances to grow their small businesses, not fewer.

  • Florida is just a few steps away from joining 85 markets worldwide where Uber delivers reliability and style at the tap of an app. Tell your State Legislators to #MoveFLForward and stand up for innovation, not special interests, by signing the petition today.

    Dear [Recipient's title] [Recipient's name],

    If Florida truly intends to thrive as a destination that fosters innovation and economic growth, its leaders should stand up for better, global transportation options like Uber. It’s time to move Florida forward. Please – stand up for consumer choice and increased transportation options and vote ‘YES’ on SB 1618 and HB 1389.

    These bills would eliminate antiquated regulations all over the state that limit consumer choice and options in transportation. We want stylish, efficient and reliable transportation options in Florida. Stand up for consumers, not special interests.

    Vote ‘YES’ on SB 1618 and HB 1389

    #MoveFLForward

    Sincerely,
