Posted by: Admin | Posted on: June 5th, 2017 | 0 Comments


SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco’s city attorney has issued subpoenas to ride-services firms Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] and Lyft Inc for records of driving practices, access for disabled passengers and whether certain neighborhoods are underserved.

The city and Uber are already also engaged in a legal fight over San Francisco’s demands for drivers’ names and addresses and comes at a time when Uber is beset by a host of other legal problems.


City Attorney Dennis Herrera said on Monday the subpoenas sought four years of records from the companies, which are based in San Francisco and have a combined estimated 45,000 drivers in the city.
