Portland Sues to Stop Uber from Operating Illegally. Nashville Still Gets Duped.
Nashville is still getting duped by ridesharing services because Metro City Council doesn’t see them for what they are – being manipulated. Just look at Portland, Oregon where Uber is being told to cease and desist – and is refusing.
Portland sued Uber on Monday to stop the fast-growing ride-hailing service from operating in the Oregon city until it follows local regulations. Uber operates in areas around Portland, but only started up in the city itself on Friday, without consent from authorities or any agreement over how it should be regulated.
This is what happens when a city dares to question a ridesharing service. But Nashville is so manipulated or intimidated / afraid that they can’t bring themselves to do what a real city like Portland, Oregon does.
