New Yorkers for Ridesharing is a coalition of community organizations, businesses, civic organizations, advocates, regular citizens, and more calling for affordable, reliable, and safe transportation alternatives for Central, Upstate, and Western New York. The effort is sponsored by the Internet Association.

Tech-based ridesharing platforms can fill important gaps for residents where public transportation is limited or unreliable and serve as a flexible source of income for cash-strapped New Yorkers. New Yorkers for Ridesharing is calling on state legislators to allow these innovative services to operate in New York State as they already do in hundreds of cities and towns across the country. The time for ridesharing is now.
