Bring Turo back to New York
Given the unique nature of the insurance statute in New York, car sharing marketplaces that offer insurance protection to their users cannot operate there. Turo spent the last few years fighting for a change to New York law. Despite widespread bipartisan support for the legislation, the New York state legislature refused to bring the bill for a vote in June 2016.
We believe the citizens of and travelers in New York are disadvantaged when car sharing marketplaces are not allowed to operate. Residents of and travelers to New York are denied the value and selection that car sharing marketplaces offer and New York car owners are unable to offset the high cost of owning and maintaining a vehicle in New York without peer-to-peer car sharing. Without this statutory update for car sharing, the current regulatory landscape offers very few alternatives for New York consumers at these peak times. Car owners are no longer able to offset the high cost of owning and maintaining a vehicle in New York without peer-to-peer car sharing.
