Uber, Lyft skip Congress hearing on ride-hailing industry

The U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee said Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc. refused to attend a hearing that will tackle labor and safety issues in the ride-hailing industry, Reuters reported Oct. 16.

In his prepared statement, Chairman Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., lashed out at both companies, saying that their failure to appear "is a telling sign that they would rather suffer a public lashing than answer questions on the record about their operations." He warned both companies that "their days of operating with little public policy and regulatory oversight in the transportation space are coming to an end."

DeFazio also criticized Uber and Lyft's business model, saying it drives down drivers' take-home pay to even below minimum wage in some states through fees, self-employment taxes, as well as the operating and maintenance costs of their vehicles.

Earlier this week, DeFazio sent letters to Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and Lyft CEO Logan Green urging them to send representatives to the hearing.

Uber and Lyft did not immediately respond to S&P Global Market Intelligence's requests for comment.
