Assemblyman Mike Norris (R,I – Lockport) today announced his public petition to allow for ridesharing in Western New York. Norris joined with Assembly members Ray Walter (R,C,I – Amherst) and Mary Beth Walsh (R,C,I,Ref – Ballston), law enforcement, and advocates including Mothers Against Drunk Driving at a press conference calling for ridesharing statewide.
“There is no doubt that the lack of ridesharing in Western New York is hurting our regional economy. Though businesses and local officials are working so hard to restore our economy and attract big ticket events such as March Madness to our community, the lack of ridesharing limits the potential economic impact of these efforts, and quite frankly makes no sense,” said Norris. “I encourage every resident of Western New York who supports ridesharing to sign my petition so we can tell Albany’s leaders that we want and need ridesharing, now.”
