Impose fees on us to help out struggling cabbies — Uber CEO

Impose fees on us to help out struggling cabbies — Uber CEO

Alex Iovine, 26, and Emma Pichl, 24, live together in Manhattan and have been dating for nearly two years.

One clear indicator of the uphill battle facing drivers is the declining value of the "medallions", or permits, required of taxi owners in New York and some other large cities.

"The middle seat was open". "At one point we leaned over and pecked kiss, very fast". "That's genuinely all it was".

Fromberg noted that the city does not regulate behavior in Uber cars and similar services. "This doesn't feel right", Iovine said.

They claimed the driver, Ahmad El Boutari, then booted them out of the car - sparking an argument in the street. "But that's not what was going on here".

"Kissing is not illegal", one of the women responds.

He also spoke about how Uber is looking for ways to offer benefits and insurance to its drivers.

In 2011, city officials under then-mayor Michael Bloomberg had selected the Nissan NV200 model as an eventual replacement for the huge fleet of New York taxis.

"It's illegal", the driver told the couple, and when they told him it wasn't, he added that it's "disrespectful".

Danker's addition to the team comes in lockstep with Uber Chief Brand Officer Bozoma Saint John's impending departure.

Iovine told the Daily News they didn't behave inappropriately.

'We would never try to upset someone in their own car'.

Uber has brought on Daniel Danker to serve as a senior director and head of driver product. The women told CNN Uber refunded their $15 fare.

El Boutari has now had his licence suspended by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission.

NBC New York reported Thursday that passenger Ryan Smith and a friend hailed a cab in Manhattan and were "shocked" when their driver interrupted their conversation to ask them if they were gay.

Uber has removed Mr El Boutari's access to its app, saying it does not tolerate discrimination.

"You don't do that here in the car. We are investigating and will take appropriate action", an Uber spokesperson has said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Iovine and Pichl say the incident has changed their perspective on being in a same-sex couple in New York City. "It was kind of a scary experience". "We don't get out there much and march in the parade", Iovine says.

He said they played loud videos on their phones and that one of the women put her feet up on the seats.
