ELIZABETH - Officials in the city of Elizabeth have passed an ordinance creating more regulations on ride-sharing companies like Uber.
The ordinance prevents drivers from picking up passengers at the city train station and Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal A.
Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage says the measure was adopted by the city council on Tuesday night.
Uber General Manager Anna Mahony says that banning the company’s drivers from places like Newark Liberty Airport or the city’s train stations could deprive the drivers of their income.
“This unworkable ordinance is precisely why we need modern, statewide regulations for ridesharing — modeled after our agreement with the City of Newark,” a spokesperson for Uber told News 12 New Jersey.
