No time for Uber talk last night at City Board

Posted By on Wed, Aug 13, 2014 at 11:43 AM

The Little Rock City Board did NOT have a scheduled discussion on Uber/Lyft, the car services that are using cell phone apps to compete with taxis around the country.

After nearly three hours of discussion on private club closing hours, Mayor Mark Stodola asked if the board wanted to take up Uber.  The board preferred to put it off until another meeting. Nothing scheduled yet.
