PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Philadelphia judge has ordered ride-hailing services Uber and Lyft to cease operations in the city.
Common Pleas Judge Linda Carpenter has ordered UberX and Lyft to stop operations in Philadelphia. The ruling comes in a suit brought by the Taxi Workers Alliance, which sought to block the temporary deal that allowed the ride-hailing services to operate during the Democratic National Convention. That legislation expired last Friday, allowing a revival of the suit.
Taxi Workers Alliance head Ronald Blount said he knows a true solution lies in any deal the legislature can adopt, when lawmakers return on the 17th.
