Conflicting situations such as this pose hard choices for cities and companies alike. Uber and Lyft could limit price increases, or prevent drivers from entering certain areas. Or local public-health officers could determine that ride-hail drivers are a risk to public safety and tell the companies to stop operation within their jurisdictions. Would Uber and Lyft accept an exclusion zone? Would drivers and riders? Such restrictions could leave drivers with precarious finances unable to pay their bills.
The irony here is I see this kind of behavior already when I hear of Uber and/or Lyft drivers who either won’t pick up or drop off certain people in certain neighborhoods — and I’m saying this as someone who was a driver once upon a time. Taxi cabs do it. This would be just another group of people (or neighborhood) to discriminate against.
