Uber and Lyft say they'll rely on PennDOT inspections for safety

Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014, 7:09 p.m.
 

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission listened to testimony Thursday from representatives of ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft as well as other transportation companies to gather information as to the adequacy of state regulations.

Several commissioners focused most of their questions to Uber and Lyft, including asking how the companies planned to meet vehicle safety requirements as well as insurance hurdles. The companies say they plan to rely on annual PennDOT inspections for vehicle safety.

Both Uber and Lyft are in the midst of a 60-day temporary approval license to operate in Allegheny County. The commission will eventually have to decide whether the companies will get permanent legal status.
