Ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft are facing the prospect of tighter regulation in California this year. At a hearing today, the companies got an earful from cab drivers and a state Senator. Ben Bradford reports from Sacramento.
The rules governing ride-hailing services are new, and limited, compared to the many local regulations that govern taxi companies and which vary from city to city. Marco Soto of the Taxicab Paratransit Association of California said that’s more than unfair.
