Uber told Engadget that it was "disappointed" with the result, claiming it "penalizes" drivers who are committed to renting cars. In the past, it has argued that the hats would damage outer districts (with less access to mass transit) and would not fix NYC's traffic congestion problems.
It is not shocking that the Supreme Court would throw the attempt to shaft law when challenges like this usually do not work. However, this ensures that the extended cap will continue as planned. Neither does Lyft's lawsuit against NYC with good objections. Like it or not, both ridesharing companies may have to live with the boundaries for the foreseeable future.
