A cellphone video taken by Pichl shows the driver saying that kissing in an Uber is illegal.

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

Because taxi drivers in New York City are required to own them, medallions were once extremely valuable and highly coveted because the demand for cabs was stable. He eventually left Microsoft for BBC in 2010 and then made his way to Shazam, where he served as chief product officer for nearly three years.

But both Iovine and Pichl said they kissed once and were not touching inappropriately.

"You don't do that here in the car".

Khosrowshahi, who joined the company last August to replace co-founder Travis Kalanick, is making several changes as he prepares for an initial public offering. And with only 13,587 medallions out there, the cost of medallions on the secondary market was sky-high: hundreds of thousands of dollars-even a cool $1 million.

"It's too late for his damage-control tour", New York Taxi Workers Alliance executive director Bhairavi Desai told the Post.

NYC's TLC, which governs taxis and other "for hire" cars, became aware of the incident after the New York Daily News Story, which included the video the women recorded.

"Uber does not tolerate any form of discrimination, and we have been in touch with the rider regarding her experience", Hendrick said.

The Nissan had many selling points: its comfort, spaciousness, fuel-efficiency, "low-annoyance" horn and see-through roof, as well as its USB ports to allow passengers to charge their smartphones.

But with cab drivers struggling to compete with Uber and Lyft, the city decided to "make things easier" on drivers by offering them more flexibility in their choice of vehicles, Allan Fromberg, spokesman of New York's Taxi and Limousine Commission, said Wednesday.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said of Elbotari (and others who act similarly), "I think they don't belong driving period". "It's an unfortunate circumstance and we will do everything we can for that not to repeat". The city medical examiner has not determined a cause of death, but Chow's family members believe he jumped to his death. "That's when we pulled out our phone".
