A group of Boston taxi cab owners is suing the city over the proliferation of Uber and Lyft. After all, it is the purpose of a democratic republic to not only create oligopolies, but to protect them against competition.
The Globe ran an article on the mismatch between city issued parking permits and available on-street parking permits. Since towers of ilium has the luxury of off-street parking any solution offered here should be taken with a grain of salt. The city could install parking meters at all streetside parking spots in all neighborhoods. Or, people could start using ride share services like Uber and Lyft more.
