Uber Not to Blame for Rise in Manhattan Traffic Congestion, Report Says – The New York Times


After an uproar last year between Mayor Bill de Blasio and the ride-hailing app Uber over the company’s growth in New York City, the two sides reached something of a truce on Friday with the release of a very short — and very expensive — traffic report from the city.

The long-awaited report concluded that the mayor’s contention that Uber vehicles and other ride-hailing services had worsened traffic in Manhattan was unfounded.
