Safe, reliable, affordable transportation that embraces technology is essential to the progress of Kansas City. Please join me in embracing new mobile app-based transportation options and welcome ridesharing to our city.

 

Despite public transit and other existing transportation services, people in Kansas City still lack sufficient options for safe, friendly, affordable rides. In recent years, our city leaders have shown great support in technology infrastructure, growth and expansion to improve mobility for residents and move Kansas City forward.

 

In cities across the country with which we compete to attract talent and industries, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, Seattle, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, and more, ridesharing apps like Lyft offer safe rides to millions of passengers by connecting background-checked local drivers with people seeking rides through trusted networks. Kansas City deserves the same.

 

Ridesharing apps show us a picture of our driver and their car, track everything by GPS, and show us exactly when they will arrive. They even have a rating system and 24-hour customer service to provide accountability and make sure riders have an enjoyable experience. Ridesharing helps to combat drunk driving, reduces road congestion, makes a positive impact on the environment, and improves public safety for our community. Kansas City has yet another opportunity to support innovation and welcome these apps.

 

Let's continue to embrace innovation by supporting ridesharing. It will boost our local economy and quality of life for years to come. Please don’t let our city miss out on progress; support ridesharing in Kansas City!

Mayor James & the City Council of Kansas City
Please support ridesharing to Kansas City

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I'd take lyft over a cab any day. It helps me feel like I can go out, have a good time, and get home safe.
