Miami won’t be getting Uber, the digital booking service to summon luxury-car rides, any time soon.
The Miami-Dade County commissioner trying to deregulate the car-service industry to allow Uber and similar technology companies to compete here has shelved her legislation — for now.
The reason: Two of her colleagues in key posts blocked it.
Though she didn’t name them, Audrey Edmonson said opposition from Bruno Barreiro and Dennis Moss made it impossible for her proposal to pass an initial procedural hurdle.
“We just don’t want to come into the 21st century,” she lamented.
