New York City caps Uber, Lyft after taxi drivers' losses

    New York City has become the latest city to reassess its relationship with ride-sharing apps.

    The US city has placed a limit on the number of ride-sharing cars on its streets and stopped issuing new licences for ride-sharing cars.

    For years, traditional taxi drivers have complained that they can not earn a living, as the likes of Uber and Lyft have grown in size.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.
