Over the past two years, the number of tickets issued by the TLC to taxi drivers for illegal airport tickets has skyrocketed by 150%. The TLC issued 431 illegal pick up tickets in April 2015, compared to 171 issued in April 2013. The yellow cab industry claims that the spike in tickets is due to Uber and other ride-sharing apps that are making illegal pickups, while the TLC claims that the increase came about because they have added many more patrols to the airports to combat the illegal pickups.
