Agenda Item Summary:
To address the emerging business of transportation network companies like Lyft and Uber, the state legislature in 2016 adopted statutes that require certain insurance limits for these businesses and background screening for all TNC drivers. Ordinance No. 6210 would similarly update the City’s ordinances in Chapter 5.60, providing for licensure of TNCs which meet the state regulations and clarifying the regulatory distinction between taxicabs and TNCs and their drivers.
