LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Kentucky Limousine Association (KLA) updated members on TNC activity at its June 2 meeting informing operators that as of April 30 Lyft was the only TNC meeting all regulatory requirements and granted operating authority in the state.

After Uber and Lyft launched in Louisville last year, the state implemented emergency regulations in December that require driver background checks, liability insurance, annual safety inspection and fee to renew their application that allows TNC drivers to operate in the state.

KLA Secretary Kent Sparks (Lake Cumberland Limousine, Somerset) told LCT that its lobbying firm, Rotunda Group, is meeting June 3 with state legislators and the Transportation Committee to discuss TNC regulations and insurance requirements, and the size of sticker to be displayed in front vehicle windows of all TNC operators in Kentucky.  

In addition, Sparks noted that the state Division of Motor Carrier Office of Legal Services reported on April 30 that it adopted a three-year criminal background check requirement for all persons directly involved with the general public in any capacity for a transportation company, in addition to extended driver history requirements, and added required vehicle inspections by only designated facilities.
