Limos.com To Avoid Uber Problems

Posted on June 13, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. — TBD.com reports that Limos.com will launch on-demand service in San Francisco in late summer and Washington D.C. this fall, competing with on-demand service app company Uber, which has been at the center of controversy since its launch due to its unique business model: Uber operates somewhere in between taxi and limo service, in an area that is outside regulating agencies’ regulations (see D.C. Taxi Commissioner Explains Uber Problems).

Doug Anderson, Limos.com chief product officer, visited D.C. to meet with Councilmember Mary Cheh’s office and with D.C. Taxicab Commission Chairman Ron Linton to discuss Limos.com’s business model and how the company plans to avoid regulatory problems and operate legally within the District.
