If you’ve been looking for a way to show your support for Uber coming to the rest of New York State, then sign this petition. It only take a couple of seconds to fill out the blanks, while sending you voice to the politicos who will be making the decision. From the Uber petition:
For far too long, New Yorkers — especially in communities Upstate — have seen jobs leave the state rather than be created right here. But New York State’s economy is finally turning around thanks to investment in innovators. Uber can help continue that revitalization by creating 13,000 jobs in New York State in the first year of operating alone.
Uber can also make New York a safer place to live by reducing drunk driving throughout the State. A recent, independent study conducted by Temple University found that cities where Uber operates have 3.6%-5.6% fewer drunk driving deaths than cities without access to ridesharing.
Buffalo without Uber doesn’t make any sense. People who live in cities with Uber know the benefits of having a quality ride close by. With the tap of an app, the closest available Uber car arrives to your doorstep. There’s nothing else like it, and Buffalo is being left out in the cold without having access to this service that so many people (in other cities) take for granted.
Now you can help to make a difference. Upwards of 8000 votes are needed to reach the 40,000 vote goal. Vote now.
