One Step Forward For Uber And Lyft

Jul 13, 2017

Monroe is getting a little closer to allowing ride sharing. At Tuesday night's council meeting held to discuss the possibility of obtaining Uber and Lyft a crowd came out for support. The council decided to proceed with the process, not everyone in attendance was happy about the news of Uber and Lyft. Local taxi companies think it will slow their business and could be dangerous to them.

"They have indicated that they are interested," Mayo said. "As of now, Lyft is saying they are coming now. Uber is saying they are not coming at this time." If the council approves a first reading of the ordinance on Tuesday, a final reading will take place on July 25.
