A freeze on the number of ride-hailing vehicles operating in New York City was made permanent last week by a New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) vote, Courthouse News Service reports.

The cap was originally implement last August, in an effort to address growing traffic congestion in the city, as a one-year ban on new vehicle licenses.

The TLC also voted to reduce the amount of time ride-hailing drivers are allowed to spend searching for rides below 60th Street in Manhattan from 41% to 31% by August 2020.
