NEW YORK (AP) — A deal has been struck between New York City and the ride-hailing company Uber.
Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration announced Wednesday that Uber has agreed to a four-month study on the impact of the cars on traffic and the environment and there will not be a cap on Uber's growth during the study.
The administration wanted a 1 percent cap during a year-long study. Uber opposed any cap.
The deal was struck a day before a City Council vote that would have imposed the limit.
The agreement includes commitments from Uber to make more of its vehicles handicap-accessible and to turn over data to the city on the location and duration of its rides.
City officials say a cap could still be imposed if Uber reneges on the deal.
