LA City Hall is divided between traditional, franchised cab companies and the RideShare companies, Uber, SideCar and Lyft. All three have smartphone apps that connect passengers with drivers who will take them where they and others want to go—for a negotiated fee. Nine franchised—and highly regulated- cab companies called that unfair competition, and the Department of Transporation issued an order to cease and desist. But the LAPD hasn’t enforced it. Does that have something to do with the new Mayor, Eric Garcetti?
