Rideshare services, such as Uber or Lyft, use online platforms to connect passengers with private drivers, typically through a mobile app. Initially, many of these services were banned as unlicensed taxi companies.
Unlike taxis, which are heavily regulated at the city and county levels, Uber, Lyft and other rideshare services fall under the newly created category of “transportation network companies.” They therefore evade much of the strict scrutiny that cab companies receive.
