New York City’s Taxi & Limousine Commission should “try again” to raise rates for ride-share drivers and provide clear reasons for doing so, a judge said in explaining why he blocked the increase last week.

Manhattan state court Justice Arthur Engoron, a former cab driver, last week blocked the raise from going into effect after Uber Technologies Inc., claiming the commission used a new and flawed method to calculate the increase.
