With the Hillsborough County Public Transportation Commission poised to perhaps finally approve new rules that would legalize the use of TNCs Uber and Lyft, now a local limousine company has filed a suit against the local agency.

West Coast Transportation Services filed a lawsuit on Nov. 4 challenging whether the PTC has the authority to regulate TNCs.

In the suit, filed in the 13th judicial circuit in Hillsborough County, West Coast Transportation says it seeks to provide transportation services as a TNC, but while it has been given written authority by the PTC, it has not been granted legal authority to do so.
