Berkeley City Council implemented a sustainable transportation road map for the city and approved a measure that, if passed, will tax users of companies such as Uber and Lyft during two special meetings Tuesday.
During the first meeting, the City Council considered several items that would put additional measures on the Nov. 3 ballot. Measures approved to appear on the ballot include a vote to repeal the residency requirement for sworn members of the Berkeley Fire Department and a vote to raise taxes to fund wildfire prevention. The council also added a ballot measure that, if approved by voters, will tax transportation network companies, or TNCs, such as Uber and Lyft.
