Ban NYC Horse Carriages
Ryder Law, Intro 573
On July 14, 2022 Intro 573 was introduced to replace Horse Carriages with Electric Carriages.
Intro 573 would wind down the horse drawn carriage industry by prohibiting the issuance of new licenses used in the operation of horse drawn cabs.
The operation of such cabs would be prohibited beginning June 1, 2024.
The industry would be replaced by horseless carriages that provide trips within Central Park and certain areas of Manhattan.
