(WHITE PLAINS, NY) “Today’s announcement is welcome news for Westchester residents, and visitors to Westchester, who want to utilize ride-share services. While we still have some concerns, we have long been proponents of safe ride-sharing in Westchester County. Unfortunately, the County Executive’s secretive tactics forced a back-room decision to be struck at the eleventh hour instead of a more open and transparent process. I look forward to hearing the comments and concerns of Westchester residents at tomorrow’s public hearing,” said Majority Leader Catherine Borgia.

“My committee has repeatedly asked representatives from the Astorino Administration to come to the table to have an open discussion on how to best bring ride-sharing to Westchester. While I welcome ride-share apps in our communities, it will be on us as legislators to stay vigilant and review best safety options for ride-sharing in Westchester going forward,” said Legislator Ben Boykin, Chair of the Board’s Committee on Public Safety & Social Services.
