Welcome to this newly created "city" forum. It is intended to discuss statewide issues in a central place rather that in the individual city forums, which may have important information. You should continue posting questions and information unique to your area in the 6 city forums:
This Statewide forum has been put on the same level of the hierarchy as these 6 associated city forums, which are allocated among the 3 current regions in the State:
  • New York City
  • NYC-Suburbs including Long Island, Westchester, and Rockland
  • Upstate-NY including all areas north of Westchester and Rockland
The Governor of NYS recently signed legislation allowing Uber, Lyft, and other TNCs (Transportation Network Companies) to operate in New York State outside of New York City, where they have been for many years. Operations officially began June 29, 2017. The relevant DMV rules are described here.

Issues of statewide interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Insurance
  • Pay, Pricing, and Rates
  • Current Laws including Child Safety, Service Animals, Dashcams, Trade-dress, and self-defense weapons
  • Proposed legislation
You may wish to examine information that exists in other threads in these forums:
