Measure GG – Tax Lyft and Uber Riders to Fund Public Services


While well-intentioned, this measure would result in unaccountable and greedy rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft passing charges on to their drivers, whom they already underpay, deny benefits and exploit.

We need to reign in these giant corporations, support workers, and fund public services — which we can do by defeating California Proposition 22 and voting in California Proposition 15 — but this measure unfortunately isn’t it. This measure would require corporations to charge riders 25 to 50 cents for each trip that originates in Berkeley to fund public services.
