Subject: I’m supporting Prop D for safer streets — join me!
On Election Day coming up on November 5, I’ll be voting YES on Proposition D, the ‘Uber and Lyft tax’ to fund safe streets and better transit in San Francisco.
I hope you’ll join me.
There are thousands more vehicles on our streets today because of ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft; on a typical weekday, ride-hail vehicles make more than 170,000 vehicle trips within San Francisco! This is taking a toll on our safety and our city.
Prop D would establish a business tax on Uber and Lyft, and the money will directly fund public transportation as well as projects that make it safer for people to walk and bike.
The tax will total only $0.10 to $0.20 for a shared ride (like UberPool), and about $0.40 to $0.60 for a more typical solo ride in an Uber or Lyft vehicle. But it will add up to an estimated $30 million each year to fund things we really need: safer streets and better public transportation.
Other major cities around the country already have local taxes on Uber and Lyft. San Francisco should, too!
