TNCs Defy City, Airport Bans In Charleston, S.C.

Posted on November 26, 2014

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Despite a ban on operating in the city of Charleston and at the airport, TNCs continue to skirt the law and service the region.

Uber drivers operating within the city risk a $1,000 fine and 30 days in jail for not complying with the city’s transportation ordinance. The city requires taxi and limo drivers to obtain a chauffeur’s license from the police department, which requires a criminal background check and driver history report. Drivers also must undergo a vehicle inspection, maintain commercial liability insurance and charge a $5 fee per ride.
