Everett sees to rules for Uber, Lyft
The Everett City Council now is revisiting the rules it set for ride-share companies such as Uber and Lyft. The rules were put on hold this past summer when Uber and Lyft pulled their services from Everett, saying they had concerns. The regulations include language about driver background checks, vehicle safety requirements and the city’s legal options for violations.
A revised ordinance came up for council discussion last week. The topic is scheduled for additional discussion for the next three Wednesdays, with a possible vote on Jan. 31.
Some expect that proposed statewide legislation, if passed this year, could address some of the sticking points surrounding this issue, in Everett and elsewhere.
