NYC tells Uber, Lyft to go fully electric by 2030
New York City has a new climate plan in an effort to cut its carbon footprint that includes major rideshare changes.
Mayor Eric Adams announced during his State of the City address Thursday that Uber and Lyft vehicles will be required to have a zero-emission fleet by 2030.
Adams said that would mean zero emission for over 100,000 vehicles on the city’s streets. He claimed that both companies are embracing the shift.
All city vehicles, including buses, are in the process of making the switch to zero emissions as well.
Adams still believes that subways are the best way to travel around the city.
