Judge dismisses NYC 'cruising cap' for Uber, Lyft drivers

"A New York judge has struck down a proposal to limit the time Uber and Lyft drivers can cruise around Manhattan without carrying riders."

Key findings

"The 'cruising cap' sought to bar Uber and Lyft drivers, beginning in February, from spending more than 36 percent of their time without a passenger throughout most of Manhattan. That restriction would have tightened to just 31 percent in August."

"City officials said the restrictions were necessary to stem worsening congestion that's resulting from an influx of ride-share services in New York City's busiest traffic corridors."
