TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! BILL GEORGE KANSAS CITY TAXI MONOPOLY BEATS LYFT!!! MAYOR SLY THREATENS CRACKDOWN AGAINST INTERNETS RIDE SHARE SERVICE!!!
In a bunch of posts we've debated Lyft and their Internets bid to take over the local taxi biz. . . Just now Mayor and City Council closed what some are calling a "potential loophole" without a public hearing or any legislative ruckus. There was a bit of objection but nobody is going to go to the mat for Lyft.
What's more fun . . .
MAYOR SLY JAMES IS PROMISING MORE TICKET CRACKDOWNS ON LYFT IN THE FUTURE!!!
Here's the money quote:
"We have to, at some point, enforce our ordinances," Kansas City James said.
This backs up the Mayor's previous endorsement of a local taxi monopoly run by CEO Bill George and his friends from France . . . And today the Internets crackdown is complete and it seems that Kansas City talks a good game about the "creative economy" and Internets support but in reality City Hall seems content to jump through hoops to support the status quo.
