ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The New York Legislative Session ended early Saturday Morning, and included in the rush of activity in the session’s final hours was the defeat of the bill that would allow ride-sharing companies to come to Upstate New York.

New York lawmakers voted against legislation that would allow ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft to come to Upstate New York.

A major concern was the possibility that the companies would not have to follow the same rules as the taxi industry.

Right now those ride sharing services are only active within the State in New York City.
