On June 21, NYC regulators voted to ban Revel from creating a new NYC electric ride-hailing service. Revel planned on launching 50 Tesla Model Y taxis, designating drivers as full time employees, and building out electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the city. 

As reported in the New York Post: "The five-to-one vote by the Taxi and Limousine Commission blocks electric transit startup Revel from launching its fleet of 50 Model Y Tesla taxis without breaking city rules. The TLC argued that Revel can still operate if it buys 50 gas cars and swaps their licenses out for electric vehicles — a requirement that Revel called “the very definition of limiting market competition." Revel’s plan would have been allowed under previous TLC rules, but shortly after Revel announced its plans to launch the Tesla service in April, TLC Chair Heredia Jarmoszuk said the agency planned to eliminate the electric vehicle exemption for ride-sharing licenses."

Revel is fighting back against this rule change, and they need our help. If you want to see Revel rideshare Teslas on the road — providing good jobs for New Yorkers, making our city’s air cleaner and safer, and putting pressure on competitors to convert to electric — please make your voice heard by signing and sharing this petition.
