On May 19th our county commissioners are holding a workshop to talk about the future of ride sharing in Miami. We love ride sharing. We know you love ride sharing. We also know you don’t have time for a midday commission hearing. So we’re fixing that on Thursday, May 14th.
We’re teaming up with local organizations to brainstorm and collect your thoughts. We’ll carry a collective message, presented by The New Tropic, on how our commissioners can best represent our interests.
