Pittsburgh mayor slams PUC over ride-sharing suits

Peduto blasted the PUC in his letter Tuesday, writing, “The role of government is to facilitate innovation and growth, not to stand in its way.” He called on the PUC to let the companies operate while state regulations are developed to govern the businesses, which don’t fit neatly within rules written for taxicabs and other motor carriers.
“In reality, these services are not going anywhere anytime soon because the people, through their wallets and smartphones, have demanded it,” Peduto wrote.
