CPUC files C&D against SideCar and Lyft

2012-10-08 18:39:04.079281+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

California Public Utilities Commission files cease-and-desist orders against SideCar and Lyft, both of which are smart-phone app based ride sharing services:

... Lyft and SideCar connect people needing rides around San Francisco with drivers who pick them up in private vehicles. Drivers are screened and insured by the companies, and collect "suggested" but voluntary donations for their rides.

So, yeah, there's a lot of fancy footwork around many insurance and regulatory issues happening here...
