CM Kitchen, given the press surrounding staff's recent approvals for Lyft and, later, Uber to pick up passengers at AIBA, it would be helpful to all of us if we could see copies of the contracts/agreements inked for both TNCs, and possibly have an update on that angle under your TNC item #3.

Thanks.

Thank you, Council Member Kitchen. Can you please confirm that next week's meeting will be televised? I'm keenly interested in the issues that the Mobility Committee will be covering, but as this first meeting overlaps with our regular Audit and Finance Committee meeting, I will be unable to attend in person.

Thanks,
