New York’s TLC has voted 7-0 today to approve the use of of e-hailing apps to pre-arrange rides for yellow cabs in the city. The program will be a one-year pilot to test out the apps. As we described yesterday, the proposal will allow apps like Hailo, Uber and GetTaxi to obtain licenses for their apps to broker pre-arranged rides between riders and yellow taxi drivers. Two commissioners did not vote. [Source: Wall Street Journal]
