City attorney demands rideshare companies turn over internal records
On Friday, San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera announced that his office had petitioned San Francisco Superior Court to require Lyft and Uber to surrender internal documents about its drivers, as the city determines whether it can take action against the ride-hailing companies as potential "public nuisances."

Herrera seeks records going back to 2013 regarding drivers who commute from other cities, how many hours they spend on SF streets, what sort of training the companies employ, and which routes are most common.
...
Uber later explained to Silicon Beat that ridesharing accounts for only two percent of trips taken in San Francisco, citing an unidentified 2015 report. In 2016, an SFTMA survey concluded that the figure was closer to four percent.

But in June of this year, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority released its own study and concluded that ride-hailing app companies generate as much as 20 percent of San Francisco traffic most days, by way of an average estimated 5,700 drivers, less than 30 percent of whom live in San Francisco.

That same analysis found that at the busiest hours, Lyft and Uber drivers make up as much as 26 percent of traffic in neighborhoods like SoMa or the Financial District, but only four percent in places like Bayview and the Sunset.

The fruit of Taxi Lobbyists' hard work. When will the city realize that Taxi is dead and start working with Uber and Lyft to increase profit for both side?
If they want to limit the number of driver in SF, they team up with Uber to add a rating requirement to get ping in SF. Such as 4.7+ drivers only. Less drivers = more surge and ping.

In San Francisco nothing is easy.

The same reason target took forever to make its way into the city. And has more "city" targets then target targets. The same reason Walmart isn't welcomed.

The same reason it takes a business forever when trying to build in a residential zoned land, a family practice.

But really, at the end of the day, its money in sf coffers — but you won't see a dime of that going back to the community...maybe a silver of a penny if we are lucky.

Dear Mr Herrera;

The annual business certificate ought to alleviate the traffic congestion problem. Of the 45,000 ride share drivers, there is a large number driving without a business certificate. These drivers are most likely driving into the city, commuting, from Sacramento, Stockton, Davis, the East Bay, the North Bay, the Peninsula, and the South Bay, and causing the aforementioned traffic congestion by sheer numbers, but also from not knowing the idiosyncrasies of the streets of San Francisco.

The business registration certificate is in line with the DMV registration, proof of insurance, ride-sharing company's inspection reports, and driver's license.

Have the ride sharing transportation network companies upload the business registration certificate, along with drivers license, proof of insurance, registration, and inspection form, to the drivers' profiles. This would remove the more than 70% of the ride-sharing cars if the regulation to do business in San Francisco were to be enforced. The city need not do anything. And will need not the names and addresses of the scofflaw drivers to get them to apply for the business certificate. Unless, of course, you want to pass a law to enforce that only San Francisco resident drivers be alllowed to conduct ride sharing business in San Francisco. This would further decrease the number of ride sharing drivers in San Francisco, and therefore traffic congestion.

Public should take SF officials to court because double increasing homelessness in the City. Homelessness is public nuisance, not driving Uber/Lyft. On the other hand, some drivers are stupid enough for out of common sense driving methods.

Supervisor Jane Kim wants to tax $2 for every ride in the City. SFMTA fat tickets. They just got $24,000 increased salary this month. Screw you SF officials and some stupid drivers.

Why do you like taxes that provide no benefit? This would do nothing other than hit your pocket book.

Uber drivers cause congestion, but roadwork that takes years to complete shutting down city block after city block is ok ? cough Van Ness, Masonic cough

And how about more construction of more buildings that blocks off entire city streets also for years on end ? Cough 1st street Cough

People moving into those new shiny buildings don't generally drive, so how they supposed to get around ? Muni ??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA
