Common Sense Regulations for Ride Share Companies

Problem

Popular ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft were operating in Connecticut cities and towns without any regulation.

Solution

After meeting with consumer protection advocates and representatives of the companies for two years, I crafted legislation establishing common sense regulations for ride-share companies like background checks for drives, vehicle safety inspections, minimum insurance standards and bans on surge pricing during severe weather or emergencies. The bill became law in 2017 and, in the end, was publicly supported by both Uber and Lyft proving that government and business can work together in the best interest of consumers.
