The Philadelphia Limousine Association hit the streets in protest of Uber Wednesday.

Chopper 6 HD was over the scene in Southwest Philadelphia.

The Association which includes hundreds of Uber Black drivers is calling on Uber to reduce the commission drivers are charged.

They also want the customer app to be reset so that Uber Black is once again the default, not UberX.

Uber issued a statement saying, "While we understand that many limousine drivers are frustrated, Philadelphia has shown enormous appetite for more affordable options like UberX."

The company also says it's taken several steps to increase demand for Uber Black.
