Rhode Island To Set Regulations For TNCs

Posted on June 21, 2016

Rhode Island has settled — for now at least — the contentious debate about how it should regulate ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft.

Before dawn on June 18, the General Assembly passed a bill that legalizes the companies and sets up a series of permits and rules for drivers using them.

The bill, developed by the Raimondo administration and Uber, means Uber and Lyft can continue expanding in Rhode Island while avoiding the bitter standoffs and departures triggered by regulators in some cities.
