Uber has mounted an aggressive and highly visible campaign against the cap, but Corey Johnson, the council speaker, believes it has enough support to pass - a stark difference from three years ago when Uber defeated an earlier cap proposed by Mayor Bill de Blasio.

An afternoon recap of the day's most important business news, delivered weekdays. The city has more than 80,000 app-based cars, often without passengers, up from 12,600 since 2015, according to the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission.
Drivers that are in support of the bill, both from taxi companies and within Uber and Lyft, claim that a spike in traffic, drop-off in productivity, and steep decline in the value of taxi medallions from over $1 million down to less than $200,000 are all results of ride-sharing's now unchecked rise in the city. "We doubled it up to 400", he said. A study last month found that 85 percent of for-hire vehicle drivers earn less than $17.22 an hour.

Uber also supports the minimum-pay standard, Post said, because it gives the company an incentive to aim for a total number of drivers that isn't so large that competition reduces their earnings. With no new vehicles joining the app, Uber drivers say they will have less competition and could spend more of their day carrying passengers instead of driving around in an empty auto.
