California’s own Uber might suspend service in the Golden State.

Plus, some people in Japan are taking virtual vacations — and “riding” fake airplanes to get there.

Those are some of today’s travel stories I thought you, too, may find interesting.

Uber’s California Shut Down?

Uber’s CEO said the company will shut down service in California — because a judge ruled Uber and Lyft likely misclassified drivers as contractors instead of employees.

This all stems from the passage and implementation of the controversial California Assembly Bill 5.

Dara Khosrowshahi told MSNBC News that his company “will have to shut down until November.” That’s when Proposition 22 — which is touted as sort of a compromise — will be voted on in the Golden State.

I’m curious where this will lead for foodservice delivery companies — such as DoorDash, GrubHub, and Seamless.
