Wednesday, they gathered at an office across the street from City Hall, so as not to attract attention, and struck the deal that ended the strafing and sidelined a City Council vote on the cap Thursday. Under the agreement, Uber would turn over an unprecedented amount of ride data to the city and move toward increasing the accessibility of their cars and contributing funds to the region's transit network. Uber steadfastly opposed any cap, and unleashed a $3 million ad campaign against de Blasio, accusing him of being in the back pocket of the yellow taxi industry and ignoring minority riders in the outerboroughs who struggle to find taxis.
