A widely-debated topic that has yet to reach a resolution here in Kansas City. Let’s lay out the current proposal for “ride-sharing”/“car for hire” services in front of the City Council.
Passed as of 4/9/15:
- Drivers pay $100/yr
- The company (Uber) pays $40,000/yr to cover expenses that would usually be passed on to drivers
- The company (Uber) shares their background checks with the city
Uber continues to insist these regulations could force them to withdraw from the KC market. Lyft, a similar service, has declined to comment on the current proposal.
