This NYC legislation to cap the number of Ubers on the road under the guise of a congestion "study" is infuriating. It's not difficult to see right through it.
There are, of course, thousands of restaurants that will deliver directly to your door through a frenetic network of young men on scooters and makeshift electric bicycles — the original on-demand service, so ancient that neither the Valley nor the Bay can take credit for inventing it.
The NYC delivery network is best-in-class and is fundamentally built in. It makes me feel ridiculous paying $ for food delivery in a city like San Francisco. The Verge talks about AmazonFresh here.
