Duluth City Council Discusses Ride Sharing
Services Could Be Available By End of April
Ride sharing services like Lyft and Uber are another step closer to operating in Duluth.
Tonight, the Duluth city council held their first reading of the ordinance that would allow ride sharing.
The council will hold a second reading of the ordinance at the next council meeting, where it will be taken to a vote.
“We’ve cleaned some things up from the agenda session and our meeting with the cab companies last Thursday,” said Noah Hobbs. “I think we got a really good ordinance that works to level that playing field, and level of safety that riders expect from any transportation service.”
Councilor Noah Hobbs believes the ordinance will pass. If it does, ride sharing services will be allowed to begin services by the end of next month.
